House in Melides / Pedro Reis

The client made the unusual decision to have an architectural competition between three distinct ateliers, allowing a choice from a wider range of possible solutions. This winning proposal presents a reading of the drama of the natural countryside, building it on top of a steep hill relatively protected by the surrounding rugged topography — via ArchDaily
