Designed by ARX Portugal + Stefano Riva this house in Juso Portugal is built over three floors (including an underground level). The top floor concrete enclosure accommodates the home’s private spaces and the rooftop affords views of the surrounding area sea and nearby mountains of Sintra.
Wooden framed glass doors stand in contrast to the white contemporary walls even as brilliant pendants and oversized floor lamps bring both color and sculptural pattern into the dining room and bedrooms. The kitchen with a wine storage facility and a full pantry also serves as a cozy social zone for the entire family while a private courtyard with a sunken lounge easily doubles as a Zen-inspired meditative nook.

Its gently rounded roof has a bean-like configuration when viewed from above.
