The landscape varies from the interior, this is reflected on the variety of shadows projected by the white volumes.

From the sky, the project has the shape of a butterfly on a garden.

Siting and Functional Organization

Troia MED is a small resort consisting of six (3 + 3) homes, and is located in the Troia peninsula, in southern Portugal. The buildings are located along the Troia golf course, along the Atlantic coast.

Of the three floors, only two are more visible. The partially buried floor is linked to the land by taking advantage of various gaps created for that purpose. Thus the house becomes practically invisible, despite its great luminosity and spaciousness inside.

The garden does not have any type of enclosure. The boundary of the property is understood as a continuous process, connecting the building with the surroundings.
