Summer Houses in Sintra

Three buildings in a single garden, under pine trees and a mountainous horizon, is an architecture project for two couples interested to repurpose two existing structures into summer houses and to build a third modern building for temporary holiday living.

Finding the essencial structure, out of chaotic pre-existances, removing noise and extending where mostly needed, to create pleaseant spaces of confort, proportion and light.
