A Minimal Portuguese Home In The Countryside
On the outskirts of Portugal’s Santiago do Cacém, admist the parched pastoral landscape of Alentjo sits a gleamingly white curved building designed by Atelier dos Remédios.
The family home, which goes by the name of Monte Do Córrego, was designed to seamlessly blend in with the surrounding agricultural landscape. Fronted by a minimal gate, the building’s entrance is set into the earth, opening to reveal an expansive, open-plan interior topped by a green roof and connected to a maze of courtyards. “The goal,” explain the architects, “is to reconcile farming and living into an unified architectural experience filled with the beautiful memories of a long-lasting family gathering on a faraway farmland of Santiago do Cacém.”
