Tiago do Vale’s Gafarim house is plotted in stark contrast to its rural Portuguese background. The contemporary home is surrounded by trees and other wildlife, allowing its crisp white foundation to stand out against the vast green fields.

Located in Ponte de Lima, Portugal, the 2713-square-foot structure aims to exemplify a “tense duality between vernacular principles and a neoplastic understating of shape, place and landscape.” Tiago do Vale‘s architects sought to fulfill their mission by creating the project with monolithic and opaque volumes, as well as generously high ceilings that welcome in natural light and create a spacious layout. The entrance features a long walkway that introduces the widespread aesthetic of the residence to guests as they venture inside.

Meanwhile on the interior, the kitchen, dining and living rooms peek behind long glass windows that reveal expansive views of the Minho river. Moving into the private chambers, the bedrooms have been positioned to face the southeast. The master bedroom and the bathrooms share a small indoor patio, one of the final standout features of the home.
