Glass is the main medium used in this strongly geometric villa, taking maximum advantage of the steepest aspect of the site. “Sampling” nature’s shapes and then abstracting them this uncompromisingly modern villa is cut into the steep hillside, its unfolding design providing easy access to the dramatic views of the surrounding countryside. Floor plans spin off a central circulation spiral staircase into three distinct platforms. Parking the car, the dramatic approach is via a descending staircase to the elegantly sheltered main door which opens up onto a vast hall like timber and stone floored kitchen and entertaining space, a area with views opening up in all directions via glazed concertina-style doors which allow light and air to flood into the area. The use of glass balustrades and linking bridges emphasize the geometry and space between the interlinking shapes. This level also houses laundry and store facilities, separate WC, and central circulation staircase off which three large double bedrooms (each en-suite) are planned.From the ground floor one ascends the staircase to the first floor, which accommodates a large roof garden with panoramic views as well as a further three double bedrooms all of which are again en-suite. Descending the staircase one arrives at the lower ground floor which houses the large open plan living area, which has direct access onto a large exterior deck and swimming pool with terraced gardens beyond. With three sides of this area designed with folding / sliding doors the whole area is in effect an external living platform, perfect for long warm Portuguese evenings.
