Designed by Camarim Arquitectos, the Gateira house in Portugal, surrounded by pines, olive trees and the vineyards, approaches the architecture from the landscape itself. The house was for a British couple, who wanted a second home giving them space, open air and silence, in contrast to their life in London.

The core of the house, a social space split in two levels creates an effective separation between the intimate rooms and family space. To emphasize the shapes of the ground, each space sits on a different level and has a direct access to the outside.

The rustic brick wall of the house entry evokes the region’s traditional slate buildings.
