Santarém

This family house is the modern interpretation of a traditional house from Ribatejo, a region on the center of Portugal, with a contemporary approach to function and organization. Built with a mixed technique of mansory and mud, giving particular attention to rustic and local materials, contrasting with the big glass surfaces and the white walls.

The mud wall, is visible not only from the outside, but also from the wide social area inside, making it reminiscent of the old ways, and the traditional portuguese farmhouse. A more ecologic, sustainable and healthy building.
