* Residential Architecture: House in Aroeira by Aires Mateus

Posted by the editors on Saturday, 14 July 2012

Residential Architecture: House in Aroeira by Aires Mateus: “..The site’s hexagonal shape goes unnoticed due to the lack of fencing, which dilutes the land into the surrounding pine trees. This house covers the maximum possible area, echoing the shape of the site. It is arranged around a courtyard, articulating its spaces as an extension of this central space. Beginning from a capricious shape, this house encounters its first sharp boundary in the outline of the awning. The auxiliary zones resolve the geometry, tranquilising the main spaces..”  Interesting curvilinear geometry, extensive glazing, natural light, views, nature..
