Text description provided by the architects. If we go up the narrow streets to a place called “Lugar do Monte” (The Mount) in Touguinhó village, we can observe the sea from afar, near the town of Vila do Conde, North of Portugal.

The placement of the house took into consideration the local landscape, the sunlight exposure and the significant slope in the terrain.
