THE MYTH & MOUNTAIN HOUSE - LOUSADA, PORTUGAL - 2011
The young couple clients bought the next plot by the side of their modernistic suburban house, north of Porto. A hill behind the row of houses left a descending mount of earth and trees on the site. The program is a library, private office, and storage, gym and clothes treatment, with a pool in the midlle. The memory and geometry of the mount is recalled. An interior maze is proposed, sense of ground, shade, books, storage of wine and cigars. Smell of clean cloths and the vapour of hot eater from the pool. The smile of confort. The skin of the tips of fingers reacting to the time spent in water.
