#01 AIRES MATEUS
Casa em Melides
Aires Mateus, brothers and partners in architecture, present a key work in this monograph, one that expresses the essence of their design thinking. Designed as a patio house, the residence sits in the hills of Grandola and faces the sea. Its lower floor solves relations with the wild topography, while its main floor spaces are large and volumetrically high, accommodating precise functions and atmospheres. Photographed in effervescent greyscale and illustrated by sections and floor plans, the house is given a special place in the oeuvre of the Portuguese architects.
