Text description provided by the architects. This project is related to a single-family detached home developed in an area designated as “Forest Space”. The project considers the environmental characteristics and the remote horizontal line where it can be seen Ria de Aveiro, a river stream.

The project contains a vast program in a contemporary language, considering an implanting area of 271 sqm. It develops in two volumes, both intersecting, one of higher dimensions, with two floors, and one of smaller scale, with a single floor.

The ground floor of the higher volume is dedicated to the social area of the house and also contains a garage for two cars. The upper level is reserved for the private area of the family.

The smaller volume has the remaining part of the requested program, which basically contemplates the game room, an interior swimming pool and a Turkish bath room.

In the area surrounding the house, it was developed a platform that expands the areas related to the living-room and the kitchen, and from which there is an access to the exterior swimming pool that enables a full contemplation of the distant but magnificent view of Aveiro.
