The new Eco-Resort of Parque de Pedras Salgadas, Portugal, consists of a set of seven small houses in perfect harmony with the surrounding nature. Designed by Luís Rebelo de Andrade and Diogo Aguiar in a modular prefabrication system but flexible to adapt to the specific places within the park, these houses result in several different combinations of the same three modules (entrance/bathing – living – sleeping). They are creating different morphologies and different dialogues with the surrounding nature, wisely occupying the empty spaces between large trees. The pitched roofs redefine the contours of the park boundary and result, within the houses in comfortable but dynamic spaces.
