Casa em Silves

Casa em Silves

Situated in the hills of southern Portugal, the Casa em Silves sits like a modern monument amongst the rural landscape. Its sharp angles and matte-white facade give the exterior a sculptural presence that contrasts the verdant surroundings. The minimalist aesthetic and monochromatic palette continue throughout the interior. A series of east-facing windows take advantage of incoming light while floor-to-ceiling glazing in the main living area highlights the views. Concealed on the rooftop is an open-air terrace. Featuring a cantilevered swimming pool, the outdoor space is prime for soaking up the sun and taking in the scenery but also doubles as a carport for the driveway below.


  • Inside an Enchanting Manor in Greenwich
    Esteemed designer Steven Gambrel oversaw the creation of this unprecedented estate located on 14 lush acres in the prestigious Conyers Farm Association of Greenwich. A member of the elite AD 100 and recognized for his distinctive designs in such illustrious locations as the Plaza Hotel, Gambrel took inspiration from the architectural vernacular of Greenwich—borrowing elements from France, Great Britain, and even the pediment, entablature, and columns of ancient Rome—and infused it with contemporary whimsy, creating an uncommon blend of classicism and modernity that utilizes eye-catching details and striking hues, patterns, and textures. The offering also includes custom furniture, carpeting, lighting, and fixtures designed by Gambrel himself.
