Mario Martins Atelier has designed this sculptural house in Luz, Portugal, that’s based on the geometric shape of an ellipse.
The 4,300 sq. ft. house is deliberately sculptural and organic. The wide floating oval and the intense white generate a fluidity and lightness that reflects its natural environment.
The designing the house the architect mentions that “a balance was sought between fullness and emptiness, weight and airiness, light and shade, or, the object and its image”.
At the front of the home, the solid curved walls are combined with cut-outs and windows to create a unique appearance.
