House Colares II

Sintra, Portugal
1 of 24Ricardo Oliveira Alves

This project for a summer home is a result of an order that from conditions in terms of program: a big living room, connected to an office area; a service area with space for light meals attached to the kitchen; a private area with two small bedrooms and a suite with an incorporated sauna; a garage with an incorporated workshop space; a swimming pool with a big solarium; well illuminated interior spaces opened over the landscape; Formal soberness and a contained budget were also demanded.

The result is a singular house: a volume of regular appearance and of compact reading, marked by big openings towards south and west e by small openings facing north and east, as a clash between the glass box and the white painted concrete box logic. Taking profit of a slight slope on the west side of the lot, the living room opens over a terrace unlevelled over the swimming pool and the solarium. The split between the living room and the bedrooms is made by a covered exterior space, which could be considered as a patio, near the terrace and in directly linked with the hall.
