Text description provided by the architects. The estate is located in the west of Coimbra, on a hillside of dense vegetation with large trees. The main house, built in the 90's, faces south, in a set of fragmented volumes with sloped roofs.

Next to the pool, an annex was later built for the technical area, outdoor kitchen and kennel, a programthat covered an extensive area of soil. The clients wanted to re-think this area and  incorporate a small guesthouse.

The proposal sought to re-naturalize the soil, favoring the blend of the guest house with vegetation that, in the future, will provide greater privacy to both houses. The different micro-volumes that compose the guest house are merged in a continuous interior space, promoting different connections with the surroundings. The simplicity of the design is also reflected in the chosen materials - pine wood, concrete and lime.
