Minimalist house in Portugal by Manuel Aires Mateus

This is an extremely captivating structure is located in Portugal and has been designed by the well known architect Manuel Aires Mateus. The contemporary house has been split into two sections – one for sleeping and one for relaxing. The sleeping section has been accommodated below the ground so that one can enjoy a noise and trouble free sleep.

The sleeping zone has an access to the private patio which is connected to the backyard. Another significant feature of the structure is that it does not feature any conventional windows. Instead, there are voids in the ceiling to allow in light.{pictures by FG+SG: Fernando Guerra, Sergio Guerra}
