A Connection With The Land & Sea

Designed by Azorean architects Luis Almedia E. Sousa and Fernando Monterio, this holiday home in the Azores focuses it’s gaze out to the wild Atlantic while settled within the island’s idyllic fields of green. Composed in two minimalist horizontal box forms, the strong static lines, concrete and volcanic stone anchor the structures into the hillside while the walls of glass eliminate the barriers with the land and sea. 

Connected by a central canopy, the innovative design divides the social and sleeping spaces, shifting and arranging space for day and nighttime living, while still forming a close connection with nature. 

Collaborating with the young contemporary Azorean artist Beatriz Brum, the home is decorated with her works of art and furnished with a smart selection of modern pieces that complement the minimalist simplicity of the structures. 

The surrounding countryside and proximity to Sao Miguel Island’s ancient natural beauty, makes this an ideal location for holiday exploration and adventure and a stylish base for the perfect hideaway to relax and enjoy the sublime natural beauty of the island.

Description

Surrounded by countryside and facing south with stunning panoramic views of the Atlantic, this holiday home in the Azores designed by Azorean architects Luis Almedia E. Sousa and Fernando Monterio is sited to take advantage of the commanding views in complete privacy.  

Designed in two separate sections and connected via a central canopy that serves to both separate and unite the home, its sublime placement and walls of glass joins the indoor and outdoor spaces in seamless connection.

The day part consists of a brightly illuminated living room and adjoining dining room, a large kitchen with a central island, and an outdoor patio nearby to enjoy dining alfresco or a glass of local wine at sunset.

The sleeping quarters consists of two double en suite bedrooms and a master suite with a dressing room. The studio/office can double as additional bedroom for two and features ocean views.

The teakwood terraces and expansive grassy lawns extend out to the pool that blends into the horizon. 

ADDITIONAL FEATURES
