Residential Architecture: Villa Extramuros by Vora Arquitectura: “..Guests can lounge amongst orange trees and a water basin in the secluded courtyard of this dreamy Portuguese guesthouse by Vora Arquitectura..The communal living rooms of Villa Extramuros open out onto the central courtyard and the dining room has a terrace that faces the surrounding fields and olive trees..The five guest suites are located on the first floor and each have their own private terrace, two of which overlook the nearby Arraiolos Castle..Floors and ceilings inside the building are concrete, while cork lines a selection of exterior walls and surfaces..Furnishings comprise a mixture of designer pieces and traditional local textiles and objects..”  Interesting form, interior volumes and materiality; ample glazing, natural light, privacy; interesting diversity of interior decoration..
