The House in Alentejo Coast in Portugal by Aires Mateus is surrounded with pine trees and completely drawn to a space that goes beyond being more than just a courtyard. The architecture of the home comes with a well-defined solid border with the interior completely liveable and better characterized with light. The more open part of the home builds a water tank through geometries. This space embraces the concept created with the closed extension.
Aires Mateus was founded by the Mateus brothers, Francisco and Manuel, who believe that every architectural design project must express the passion of an idea with the use of the elements of space and limits. Check out the rest of their other projects via http://www.airesmateus.com/.
