The chic C+P House, Lisbon, Portugal


Portuguese architectural practice Gonçalo das Neves Nunes Arquitecto have design the C+P House. Completed in 2011, this contemporary property  has been designed using concrete, glass and stone can be found in Lisbon, Portugal.

According to the architects: “The property reflects the relationship between indoors and outdoors through yards, terraces, balconies and light shade slabs. The implantation takes advantage of the plot’s morphology that permits two entrances (main and garage) at different  levels.

“The contemporary Portuguese house is apparently monolithic but it shows itself to south and east finding views and exposition. The main entrace is done through a recess in the western façade where you can find a distribution area framed by a courtyard. The private zones are organised in the upper level and the social zones at the entrance level..

“As you go down to the garage level, that is partially underground, you find can an exterior covered space that continues the social use of the house by its relation with the swimming pool.

“The facades have been finished in Travertino stone and the slabs are marked by its beam boundary that is coated with concrete. The lower level walls are in raw concrete. The interior design is comfortable and is sought by the walnut wood panels and flooring.”
