elongated volumes rooted in the surrounding landscape form this minimal house by spanish firm fran silvestre arquitectos. located in the wooded area of a golf course in lisbon, portugal, the ‘coimbra-steinman house’ splits into two volumes that mirror the different purposes of the residence.
emerging from the sloping hills and overlooking green terrain, the single-family residence is built on a longitudinal surface with a triangular geometry. a linear architecture houses an open living area, accommodating shared spaces which include two offices, a kitchen area and a living room. meanwhile, a second volume unfolds from the point of contact, housing the homes private functions.
the former is awash in natural light permitted via panoramic windows that open out to additional outdoor spaces. extending beyond the enclosed structure there is also a covered terrace, patio and a swimming pool. a basement floor situated where the two volumes meet which hosts other facilities including a garage, storage and laundry rooms, a spare bedroom and bathroom.
the second volume houses four ensuite bedrooms that look out towards a wooded area which affords their inhabitants a decent level of privacy. there is also a master bedroom located at the tip of the structure which benefits from an unobstructed vista afforded by floor to ceiling windows.
the interior is kept bright and minimal throughout the home with monochrome furnishings accenting white marble and high-end finishes. fran silvestre arquitectos has completed a series of picturesque houses including a cantilevered residence wrapped in an entirely glass facade, and a single-story property skirted with concealed lighting.
