Bright and White
Frost-hued forms stacked like massive sugar cubes, low-slung boxes that appear in the woods like they landed from another planet, and rectilinear structures that reflect all the light.
Nature's dominant palette of blue and green contrasts beautifully with these three stacked cubes in overlapping angles. The home, built into a slope overlooking the island and the Mediterranean, allows total immersion into the landscape.
We're getting Le Corbusier vibes from this five-story, split-level home that was built in harmony with a historic chapel next door. Geometric bliss continues into the Malevich-esque blue circle pool (set on a white square, naturally).
This earth-hugging structure lies among the pines of Sintra-Cascais National Park, just five minutes from the Atlantic coast of Portugal. We love its low-slung silhouette, and the equally bright interiors.
Listed as one of Condé Nast Traveller’s best villas in Comporta, this holiday home in Portugal was designed by architect Pedro Ferreira Pinto. Embodying his driving "less is more" philosophy, its soaring forms are stylishly spare.
With a name that means "villa that mirrors the sea," this home among the olive groves is all about reflection. Especially that of the sun's warmth on the gleaming facade, with a glassy pool that rolls out like a clear carpet.
Crisp angles meet the wild fanning of palms at this island villa with a butterfly silhouette and vintage Bauhaus inspired design. It's a wonderful pairing of the contemporary and natural worlds, with a secluded location and stunning Atlantic views.
The Amalfi Coast is always a good idea. If you have the great fortune of coming soon, consider a stay at this 1960s throwback, where stark lines and forms contrast poetically with the wavy pillars of the succulent garden.
This modern Cycladic creation departs masterfully from the rounded angles of tradition. Yielding to the site's rugged terrain, its whitewashed monolithic shape is art installation-level pure and perfect.
