Sculptural, elegant and subdued to white, the house designed by architect Manuel Aires Mateus creates a really interesting indoor-outdoor play into the scenery as part of the establishment ought to be discovered below the ground level.

The intimate white volume-home uses a traditional shape to sculpt the spare around it in the outskirts of Leiria in Portugal; a large opening in the roof opens up to flood the home`s heart with light, animating the living room and allowing stargazing at nightfall from within.
