Incrível estes quase imperceptíveis 66 m2 de arquitectura da MSB exibidos de maneira tão surpreendente ao mundo !!

Small house integrates well into mountainside 

Rocky retreat This house located on a very steep site with little stone support walls that are so frequent in Madeira’s landscaping.

The house is small, 66 square metres, and consists of a sitting room with a small kitchen, a bathroom and a bedroom. The architects aimed for the construction to be as indiscernible as possible, as if it was part of the existing stone walls. The formal solution is described in the land. The architecture is based on what already existed that means the stone walls. The house thus forges a connection with its environment, thanks to the views of the sea and the mountains and the garden areas that surround the house.
