Lisbon-based design studio Aires Mateus & Associados has designed the House in Aroeira. The project was completed in 2010 and the contemporary property can be found in Aroeira, Portugal.
According to the architects: “The site’s hexagonal shape goes unnoticed due to the lack of fencing, which dilutes the land into the surrounding pine trees. The contemporary Portuguese property covers the maximum possible area, echoing the shape of the site. It is arranged around a courtyard, articulating its spaces as an extension of this central space.
“Beginning from a capricious shape, the contemporary property encounters its first sharp boundary in the outline of the awning. The auxiliary zones resolve the geometry, tranquilising the main areas.” Images courtesy of Aires Mateus & Associados.
