Lighthouse Island housing

The Lighthouse Island is located in the south of Portugal.

It's a reticular agglomerate formed by typical houses that creates a portion of land accessible only by boat.

Lighthouse Island housing

The intervention was made on a typical Algarve house: the interior spaces were redesigned and the program was reformulated based on the original structure of the house. The acessible terrace was thought to be able to be occupied in different ways.

We created an element that improves the indoor and outdoor housing experience: wood slat surfaces that create shading and characterize the overall picture of the house.

Despite this house's overall image change, its unique characteristics were respected and potentiated through the enhancement oh the porch and terrace areas.
