A trapezoidal perspective of minimalist architectural simplicity, the JC House in Cruz Quebrada is a superbly executed luxury residence that takes full advantage of the sensational sunlit views across the Atlantic Ocean from it splendid hillside location in the Algarve in southern Portugal.
The residence was created with a perfectly harmonious combination of two massive volumes consisting of rectangular and trapezoid elements with the upper volume displaced on the lower with an angle that creates a totally unique exterior geometric feature. The white volumes of the interior contrast perfectly with rich wooden floors throughout while the concrete columns near the windows bring visual elements of a loft style to the interior. The exquisitely simple design is amplified with a main level where the interior and exterior spaces sublimely flow outwards onto an open terrace with a swimming pool from the living room.
The magnificent visual characteristics of the two main staggered volumes of the home design perfectly align to create a certain dynamic exclusivity to the residence that impresses with it simple functionality and elegant atmosphere of luxury delivering an auspice of top tier living.
