This composition of two independent twin houses with superb views over the Ria de Aveiro in Portugal was realised by the local practice RVDM arquitectos. In order to provide a maximum of direct sunlight to both houses the facade of the superior volume, which would become shadowy by its orientation towards north, was planned as a multi-faceted light-catching front.

“The design option resolved the clients program organizing two volumes, one over another: a long one, slightly dislocated, supports the other, free, searching the landscape. The wrinkling of the superior one, helped to create a texture for the elevations with cladding of entire HPL panels (300 x 115cm) for better enclosure. Exterior position of the panels are designed to permit shutters all around the house.
Interiors were drawn from one same matrix. On the upper volume internal boxes organizes intimate and social spaces, focusing views towards the west and the lagoon.”
