Architecture Posto 9 | Holiday Houses

These small vacation villas, were designed for an “anonymous” plot, along the beach of “Manta Rota” on the “Algarve” Coast.

Despite belonging to different clients, the two houses were designed together, becoming a one house volume unit, consisting of two twin fractions.

In each of the fractions, the ground floor is occupied by a single space, comprising lounge and kitchen areas, facing to the east and west respectively. These spaces extend to the outside on covered porches, expanding the available floor space, and protecting the interior from direct sunlight.

The first floor is reserved for the private areas, with three bedrooms with the same dimensions, two of them facing east.

The architectural language of the set is based on the expressiveness of its own elements, dosed by the criteria of simplicity so characteristic in the South architecture.
