Designing a house in Luz-Lagos, in the south of Portugal, in a truly interesting location facing the sea, was defined by a set of guidelines, namely: - The creation of a contemporary architectural element; - Respect for and connection with the surrounding area, natural and built upon; - The use of local materials and building techniques; - Deciding the solar orientation and having effective wind protection; - Making the most of the excellent location and its panoramic views; - Creating a gentle interior/exterior transition. So that the exterior is a pleasant space for living and leisure. These guidelines result in a set of white volumes, free and organically grouped, culminating in a semi-circular opening, which embraces the pool and opens out to the privileged sea view. This results in the central terrace, the main space of the house, where the privacy is felt and where the horizon is predominant.
