* Residential Architecture: House in Matinhal by ARX

Posted by the editors on Sunday, 10 June 2012

Residential Architecture: House in Matinhal by ARX: “..The highest and longest volume is located in the north to create an protect a central marble patio from the strong and permanent winds. An “L” shaped bedroom wing helps creating privacy from the access road into the pool. Inside and outside spaces are always articulated by courtyards, a typology from the Moorish legacy, while filtering views to selected fragments of untouched landscape..The house is white and the roofs are flat, as they where often built in traditional architecture in this area..”  Ample glazing, views, natural light, indoor/outdoor and contextual sensibility..
