House in Vila Nova de Famalicão

The brief required the construction of a new villa on the foundations of an unbuilt structure; the refurbishment of a smaller house; and the landscaping of the extensive grounds. A narrow path along the north face of the building leads to the entrance in an unobtrusive single-storey tract that houses the ancillary rooms. The space unfolds into a two-storey entrance foyer filled with light. From here, a ramp leads down to a flowing sequence of living spaces with views of the surrounding landscape. Roof lights allow natural light to penetrate to the ground floor. In the living rooms, the flooring, door linings and inbuilt furniture are in oak. In the kitchen and bathrooms, the floors and walls are clad with sand-coloured marble.
