VILLAS THAT EMBRACE THE INFINITE
Is it possible to dialogue with the house in which we live? Of course, it is. The LUX MARE villas (Casa L and Casa M) talk to us in a very specific dialect: a language of light and shapes that are simultaneously fuelled by Northern European aesthetics and the heat of the Algarve.
The relationship with the community has been a fundamental part of the architectural plan right from the start, and that is why they wish to use local raw materials and suppliers perfectly suited to the creative and environmental vision of local architect Mário Martins.
Sustainability and the houses’ subtle setting on the slope are the alma mater of the two villas – two continents adrift, albeit aware of their anchor in an immense sea of light, which come together then push apart without ever really moving at all, like an elegant dance in the wild.
Casa M, located closer to the sea and lower on the land, is submerged by the surrounding garden – the roof is landscaped so that Casa L, which lies further back, may benefit from an endless view. The elegant lines, simplicity of the white walls and materials such as wood and glass create a perfect energetic balance. This forms the concept, determining a sense of harmony with the surrounding environment.
Green and blue spread as far as the eye can see – the sky and the Atlantic – transforming the simple experience of being into a breath-taking, unforgettable occurrence.
