Lake House 2 Lake House in Portugal Paying Tribute to Modern Architecture

Frederico Valsassina Architects designed a lake house in Aroeira, Portugal. The residence displays a modern architecture, consisting of volumes with different functions and emphasizing the indoor/ outdoor interaction: “We wanted a home that understands the autonomy of different spatialities – social / private, day / night – with the creation of a terrace adjacent to the pool. Taking advantage of the conditions of deployment of the lot, both in terms of topography and its limits, the position of the villa emphasizes the creation of dominant visual axis in the direction of the immediate surroundings of the lake. Indeed, the service areas protect strategically, social areas, occupying the most disadvantaged local deployment. Investing in the gradual transition between the inside and outside, the terrace is assumed as a natural extension of the living area, promoting ongoing dialog with the environment and flexibility in the proposed appropriation of different spaces“. Find any distinctive features which make this home inspirational?
