Casa dos Mores
A single-wall house to shelter love from prying eyes

An outstanding lookout point at the peak of a cliff, with open views of the ocean and the infinite horizon, yet nestled within exuberant vegetation and sheltered from the elements and the prying eyes of majestic trees. The house is pure serenity, filled with the scent of the sea and graced by the sound of wandering birds, it is as close as living on a permanent holiday feels like.
The topography of this site offered the not-so-common opportunity to design a house that defies the distinction between indoors and outdoors thanks to full-height windows all around while maintaining the feeling of complete privacy and exclusive isolation.
