Located on a coastal city in the central region of Portugal, the House in Ovar is a large scale uni-family residential unit made of concrete.
With geometric forms in various heights, the most expressive areas of house are the indoor swimming pool and the painter’s studio.
The length of the corridor is used to distribute the desired functions and large areas, further creating clipping plan, which allow for a relation with landscape.
Inspiration from architect:
The house is an exercise where we stretched to the limit a number of ideas and concepts for a long time already contained in other projects, which had never been put in place. It is also – and above all – a project, which allows for thinking with other people about their own way of inhabiting a dwelling.
