Abrantes House

The prairie house in Portugal
Abrantes House

This is a single family house designed for a young couple in Abrantes. Located on a strip of land with 5230 square meters, the construction area is 680 square meters. It is a one-story house with six bedrooms plus one office. The house has two different areas: the main residence and the leisure spaces. We didn’t want to change the land’s topography, so there was the need to create different levels while taking care of the accessibility requirements. The formal concept was referenced towards the Mediterranean and Islamic traditions of the patios, colonnades, and transition spaces. At the same time, we got inspiration from the prairie houses of Frank Lloyd Wright. Stone and wood, playing with stucco, were chosen to meet the client’s references.
