“Sky of a fainting blue – beneath slaps of whitewash. Sun reverberation and the bluest blue, the whitest white. Cubes, geometric lines, animal light that twitches and vibrates like the wings of a cicada.”, Raul Brandão in Pescadores.

There would be no shortage of words to describe this new detached house, designed by the Corpo Atelier team. Designed along a golf course in Vilamoura, Portugal, where several empty plots gave way to architectural designs, everything had been built from scratch. The two blocks of white walls, which we see as soon as we spot the house, with their cubic form, ‘almost’ cancel out direct contact with future neighbours, as if to mark their independent territory. The architectural landscape, regulated in a single function, creates a feeling of protection, while the distant landscape takes us to the tranquillity of the surrounding nature. There is only one horizontal volume in this project, which is where the south-developing swimming pool with views over the golf course is, and it is here between two white walls that the entering light, the blue water and the sun’s rays illuminate the space and heighten relaxation.
