Located on an woody site at Meco beach, nearby Sesimbra in the outskirts of Lisbon, this house aims to a close relation with surrounding space, a beautiful natural landscape. The resultant form proposes an almost accidental arrangement of different and overlapped solids, dealing with mass, voids and balance. Windows are opened in a apparent free way trying to catch the most interesting spots in the surrounding landscape. From the interior we also can notice some of the attached external spaces or volumes acting as mediators in the perspective. Using a range of different finishes, this house plays with materiality, trying to organize form and space. One of them, in textured glass box, gives opportunity to light draw changing textures trough some interior spaces. Main circulations, as the staircases and the bridge between the upper rooms, are in white painted metal and glass, drawn as light as possible.
