Contemporary Colunata House, Portugal

Portugal-based design studio Mario Martins Atelier has designed the Colunata House project. Completed in 2011, this contemporary seaside home is located in the town of Lagos, in the Barlavento region of the Algarve, Portugal.

The contemporary Portuguese house is all in white. It is a south facing property and as such benefits from intense sunlight, especially in the summer.  It is this light, with its strong, distinct shadows, that gives colour and meaning to the white that covers the contemporary Portuguese property. The strong presence of water and the landscaping surrounding the area accentuate the tranquility of the place. Images courtesy of by: FG+SG.
