Glass, cement, and wood unite to form this newly built contemporary, providing over 3,000 square feet of living space. The sprawling, single-family home sits tucked away in an area of natural protection due to the existence of several cork oaks surrounding the property. Offering a quiet and serene retreat, the villa is also conveniently located just a 10-minute drive from Amarante and 45 minutes away from the city of Porto. Notable features include: walls of glass, custom built-ins from ebony wood, a rooftop terrace, and intimate indoor/outdoor living, among others.
Art object or machine for living in Architect William Massie’s personal prefab project takes the mass out of mass customization to create a one-of-a-kind wonder.
