Casa na Terra

The Project

WHEN OUR DEAR FRIENDS INVITED US FOR LUNCH, WE IMMEDIATELY FELL IN LOVE WITH THEIR BEAUTIFUL HOME BY THE LAKE.

One of the Silent Living homes is in the heart of Alentejo near Monsaraz. It is a spectacular conversation between architecture and earth. The house is something to discover and enjoy and share with others. It is like stumbling upon a treasure, barely visible within its own surroundings. It seemingly melts into the earth while simultaneously emerging from it.

Our first visit to the house was for a meal, naturally. We had been invited by our friends for a long and leisurely lunch. We immediately fell in love with it. Soon after, they asked us if we would like to take care of it, and share it with our guests.

We gladly accepted. Everything about the residence reflected Silent Living and our values. It was peaceful, almost enchanted, and a place where any guest would be profoundly at ease. It’s connection to nature was effortless. Moreover, looking after it as our own, is everything Silent Living stands for; to nurture and care for what is most precious, which is the connection with loved ones, family, and friends, while sharing a delicious meal and enjoying Nature.

Designed by our dear friend and architect Manuel Aires Mateus, the project won Arch Daily's Building of the Year in 2020.

The house

The house honors the landscape from which it’s built. It completely dissolves into the topography, minimizing the impact a building may have on the landscape or the view.
Amid the rolling green hills, the only visible elements of the building are the patios and a large dome that links the interior rooms with the outdoors.

The house offers 3 ensuite rooms, brightened by adjoining private patios. The kitchen and living area open up to the grand patio, offering majestic views of the property and the beautiful Alqueva lake.
The dome, seemingly cut from the hillside itself, is at the home’s center and the natural gathering place for guests.
