The exteriors: The beauty of this home comes from the plot, which is a part of green protection area, and can be accessed by both foot and car with ease. The living spaces are located on the eastern side because of the best access to the views around, while the other rooms face south, thanks to the good amount of sun exposure and confidentiality. Since the ground level on side is higher, the connection between the interiors and exteriors is extremely well maintained and balanced.


For the construction needs, the design studio has used a Braga based company, known for light steel frame designs and construction. The entry level of the house features two concrete walls that connect well with the first floor level. While the lower level is more concrete, the upper level is designed with light steel frame system that comes with exterior insulation.
