Single Family Home in Valongo, Portugal
The Patio House.
The house finds its setting in a gently sloped terrain, embedded in an almost immaculate natural environment with dense vegetation.
The patio becomes the central and generating element of the whole spatial organization. The landscape, like the patio, has a main role in space disposal, particularly in the views from the inside of the house. So, by walking through the interior of the house the landscape assumes a major role in the composition of the spaces.
