House in Tavira \ Vitor Vilhena Architects

• December 13, 2012

Joao Morgado shared with us one of his latest architectural photography. Designed by Vitor Vilhena Architects, this house is located in South of Portugal, Algarve, Tavira. Here the ocean peeks, while the 400 olive trees surround the house. An old building has to give place to a new one, keeping the two volume-footprint in the soft topography.

Based on the area occupied by the pre-existence, maintaining the orientation of the housing compartments south, the architectural concept seeks to create two parcels with separate identities, including one volume with irregular geometry and other volume of regular geometry that communicate through a glass hallway. The surrounding outdoors relate to the terrain, landscape and vegetation.
