House in Melides


I do not usually write about architecture, but this house has really caught my attention. As an unusual point, the client of this build made a competition between three architects and Pedro Reis won the project.

The house is in Melides, Portugal, and has two volumes in the shape of a cross. In the upper volume are the main spaces: living room and dining room in an open plan format, the kitchen and the main bedroom. In the lower volume are the secondary spaces: bedrooms, bathrooms and the garage.

I like the contrast between the upper volume, white and clean, and the lower one, with a more rustic style.
