House in Leiria
Designed by Portuguese architect Manuel Aires Mateus, the striking and minimal House in Leiria is located in Portugal, in a high point, overlooking the city of Leiria.
The home was divided into two distinct areas, one for socialising and one for sleeping. The bedrooms are positioned below ground, with access to private patios that lead to the backyard.
It is not equipped with conventional windows. Instead it features voids in the ceiling which attract light indoors. An extremely minimalist design, and one that has been superbly executed by Aires Mateus.
