The house is located in Vila do Conde, in a rural territory with several fields of cultivation in the north of Portugal. Entrance to the house is performed by the eastern side, and most areas are facing the side garden and swimming pool, oriented to West. The program requested three rooms, one of which is a suite with dressing room and the other two are supported by a bathroom, a small office, a living and a dining room, the kitchen, a toilet, a garage and a laundry. The interior spaces through the large glass windows extend over the external floors and embrace the garden and the pool.
