Text description provided by the architects.

The house is located in Arrifana, a small village that is only two and a half miles from the city center of Santa Maria da Feira, but still maintains the strong rural features with all its charm and beauty that characterize this type of housing style, where the Vouga railroad persists today.

The project is developed in a land lot characterized by its triangular shape, with little rugged topography, that establishes a superior interface with the contiguous land as well as the street level, allowing us to extend our gazes over the horizon.
The building is incorporated and occupies a large part of the land; therefore, it maintains the same triangular shape.

The architectural volume allows a variety of perspectives exceeding the upper floor by its articulation with the lower floor.
The façades of the building each had the same treatment defining a white volume where the emptiness outlines the shape and regulates the entry of natural light still projecting an interesting set of shadows.

The interior of the house is composed with a streamlined form, with white color on the walls, ceilings, woodwork, and wood on the floor, all features that allow the conception of a comfortable environment that values homogeneity..
