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.
