A stunning luxury villa on Portugal’s Estoril Coast inspired by the timeless beauty of its setting, the Wall House residence seeks to embrace rather than compete with nature. Its bold design, sleek lines and elegantly simple interiors focus attention outwards on the natural elements of the surrounding landscape. An exquisitely contemporary sculpture of modern architecture, this luxury residence is distinguished by its synthesis of two pools bisecting each other. The ground level pool is overlapped with one floating above distinguished by a glass bottom making you feel like your swimming in the air.
Located in a region known as the Portuguese Riviera, just 20 minutes west of Lisbon on the west Atlantic coastline, the stunning Wall House luxury residence is set on the edge of the premier Oitavos Dunes Golf Course amongst natural sand dunes and pine trees within the Sintra Cascais National Park.
The concrete, glass and wood structure are anchored by the two exterior swimming pools that run perpendicular to each other within an open boxed layout designed to encompass a volumetric synergy between interior and exterior spaces. The homes exterior concrete walls are augmented with open slatted roof features that deliver an immersive atmosphere that resonates with the exclusive ambiance of the design. This is truly a superb representation of modern luxury architecture that recomposes the boundaries between air, water and nature itself.
