Architecture Design of House MC
Description About The Project
House MC designed by Atelier d’Arquitectura Lopes da Costa is a stunning single family residence located in Santa Maria da Feira, Portugal. The goal of this project, based on the premises and constraints of the site, was to create an integrated house in its surroundings. Also, favoring the relationship of the interior and exterior spaces, creating different areas according to the views, the sun and shade, and the function of each space, looking for a strong connection with the land. Therefore, this house, favoring the views and the relationship with the surrounding garden, turns essentially towards the south around the outdoor pool, which lies on an intermediate level between the basement and the ground floor.
In this volume, on the upper floor, the social spaces are located, being the kitchen and living rooms fully open to the South and the study facing West. Besides, the body of the rooms, the most intimate core, finishes the whole to the West, landing on the elevation of the land and taking advantage of the views over the pine forest that extends to the bottom of the land. The two bodies are connected through a glass-bridge corridor that lets the garden flow underneath. Indeed, all things make the house brings the high end amenities, yet harmony with the nature and become the ideal place for the owner to enjoy the beautiful life.

Text by the Architects: The site’s slope was decisive for the adopted solution. The existing South/North-oriented slope gave rise to a false basement, where the garage, the lounge, and support areas were located. In addition to this, the upper floor joins these two separate volumes longitudinally, creating a covered parking space and granting a lighter volumetry, like a bridge, which relates to the surrounding garden.
