The two new houses includes two individual parts of a set, two autonomous pieces that complement one another, two separate continents, where the contours clearly show the previous coexistence, or the union of two different people or an evocation of love through architecture. Clearly, the slightly curved shapes suggest this connection, but the differences between them emphasize the individuality of each building.

The Casa Mare, the front one, is built on a lower level and submerges into the garden as it is completely surrounded by vegetation. While, the Casa Lux, behind it, benefits from its fantastic location.

The houses snuggle down into the landscape without drawing attention to themselves. Especially, the horizontal glazed frontages that provide a frame for the different views of the almost perfect symbiosis. It includes the surrounding greenery, the steep cliff, the wide-open sea and the sky.

The voids in the buildings, with special attention for the wavy iconographic void and the use of wood are a tribute to one of the greatest architects of the XX century, Alvar Aalto and the Nordic design. So, it is a quest for a symbiosis between the crudest architectural culture of the South and the elegance of Northern European design. So that the house is both the origin and the destination.

Also, the simple lines, the uniformity and the plasticity of the white plaster and the balance of the resources and the design are factors that should become a benchmark in responsible architecture.

The LuxMare Houses Gallery:

Description: In southern Portugal’s algarve region, Mário Martins Atelier has completed a pair of residences designed as ‘two autonomous pieces that complement one another’. Referencing their coastal setting, the dwellings are known as the ‘lux mare’ houses — a term that translates as ‘light of the sea’. Indeed, the project comprises two homes: ‘casa lux’, which takes advantage of the light it receives as a result of its hilltop location; and ‘casa mare’, which is built on a lower level — completely surrounded by vegetation.
