Casa Mexilhoeira-Grande – 11 Jun 2012
This new house faces south with views over the estuary of Alvor. The building has bedrooms, bathroom and laundry at ground level. On this foundation rests a top floor of living spaces, with a sloping roof, and a terrace that develops along the whole facade. The living room, dining room and kitchen take advantage of the exposure and the outdoor area in terrace, sheltered by the very construction from the prevailing winds from the north.
