Elegant House of the Brejos da Carregueira designed by Estudio AMATAM is an impressive project which is harmonious combination between modern and traditional. Indeed, the house showcases the traditional Portuguese houses in the countryside. As well as it brings the modern living spaces with high end amenities for the qualities of a vacation home.

In the exterior, the designer developed a contemporary language, with pure and simple forms. These modern volumes conceal an interior that exploits a spatiality that takes advantage of the two – story roofs. Despite its modern language, the exterior with materials that also explore the more artisan side of the country houses. Through the use of wood in the doorways and, white ceramic brick.

The front facade is the most reserved one since to turn the house to the interior of the plot, where the main outdoor living spaces are located. The main entrance itself is protected by a wall that creates a feeling of intimacy. Also, in the parking area, located on the right side of the house, another wall was placed to protect the pool area on the back of the plot. Here are located the main outdoor spaces, relating to the swimming pool. Besides, as a family that loves gastronomy and welcomes guests, the kitchen will be a prominent space in the family dynamic. Then, this space could communicate directly with the outside and the swimming pool.

Indeed, this house is designed with identity, both outside and inside. Furthermore, it can bring together two distinct languages. One inside (more traditional) and one outside (more modern), with the best qualities of both. Consequently, it becomes a space that is a discovery.

Text by the Architects:  Develop a project for a house uniquely for vacations has challenged us to create a spatial. And programmatic concept that reflects this specificity. We sought to understand the qualities of a vacation home. And we focused on some characteristics that seemed essential to us. An inner spatial organization that allowed a strong coexistence among its users. A very close relation between the social area and its exterior. And an atmosphere that revived the morphology of traditional Portuguese houses in the countryside. Our proposal has resulted in an unusual dialogue between modern and traditional.
