Casa na Terra

The Project

Through the sense of sharing and friendship, we found a new home for Silent Living in the deepest heart of Alentejo.
When we were invited for lunch by our dear friends, we immediately fell in love with their beautiful home by the lake, in Monsaraz. Soon after, they asked us to take care of it like one of our own, and share it with our guests through the Silent Living values.
The peaceful and enchanting scenario given by the house and the property itself, as well as its profound respect for nature, made it effortless for us to embrace it as a new Silent Living home. Moreover, looking after it as if it is our own, could not be more in tune with what Silent Living stands for - to nurture and to care for valuable friendships.
The house honors very deeply its natural surroundings, finding shelter in the land itself. Designed by our dear friend Manuel Aires Mateus, the project won Arch Daily's Building of the Year 2020.  

The house

 In order to completely integrate the house into the landscape and minimize its impact, it merges with the topography.
Amid a wide natural landscape, the sole visible elements of the building are the patios and a dome, that visually connects all the rooms within its natural surroundings. 
The house offers 3 ensuite rooms, brightened by little private patios. The kitchen and living area open up to the grand patio, overlooking the beautiful and vast property, as well as the Alqueva lake. 
The dome that covers the comunal areas becomes the house’s centre of life, almost as if it was cast from the ground itself.

The house is not only close to the margin of Lagoa do Alqueva, known for its beautiful natural landscapes and as a calm and secret stop in the summer days, but also the cultural center town of Monsaraz, full of interesting and historical places to visit and get to know the deepest part of Portugal.
