A luxury golf and beach resort in Southern Portugal

This impressive property is a villa located in Vale do Lobo, a luxury golf and beach resort in Faro, Southern Portugal. The property covers an area of 600 square meters and it was a project by ARQUI + Lda. Completed in 2011, the house has a minimalist and modern design with a suspended pool as focal point.

The property is surrounded by a golf course, greenery and a small lake. Given the variety of landscape, the architects decided not to create a clear boundary between the property and the surroundings thus delimitating it from the rest of the landscape. Instead, they used the building to delimitate the public and private spaces. The house has been developed in a U shape. In the middle there’s a courtyard with a suspended pool. This sculptural creation is the main attraction on the property.

The suspended pool cascades down into a reflecting pool, also a great playground for kids. If you thought two pools were impressive, then you should also know that this property also has an indoor pool situated in the spa area. The public and private areas are separated by vertical walls. The spaces facing the courtyard have sliding doors that can completely remove the barrier between indoor and outdoor. The interior features alternating black and white areas.

The spa is black but the main living area is a white volume. There’s also a separate volume that contains 5 bedrooms. The villa also has a roof terrace with a mini-pool and a basement that contains a games room, home cinema and home spa as well as a double garage.{found on archdaily and pics by FG + SG}.
