Completed in 2007 by Eduardo Souto de Moura, this modern residence is located in Maia, Portugal and was built on two lots that feature a difference of 22 feet between their ends. The living rooms are orientated towards the west, while the bedrooms are located on the eastern side of the lot. Underneath the main volumes, there is a basement that incorporates a porch a swimming pool and a mechanical room.

The property impresses with two patios and two gardens that feature varying designs. The bedrooms facing the east benefit from access to a private oriental garden, while the living rooms to the west face a long garden with North Oaks. Minimalistic yet welcoming and luxurious, this home in Maia offers more than adequate living conditions for a small family or a single owner.

From the architect:

The house develops on two lots with a difference of seven meters between the ends. Between two volumes, the program is: bedrooms to the east and living rooms to the west. Below, is a basement with a porch used as a garage, a pool and the mechanical room.

The house has two patios, two gardens with different geographies: to the east, the bedrooms, the more intimate area with a tranquil oriental garden that provides the necessary light. To the west a long garden with North Oaks, with a pool where a window lets you see the industrial outskirts and the metro passing.

When reality, even without interests, is framed with conviction, it can acquire a favorite status (or isn’t it true that the greatest misery such as trash and war, have given the greatest photographs…)
