‘cabo de vila’ house by architectural firm spaceworkers has been constructed in order to embrace its surrounding environment. located in bitarães, portugal, the irregular building has been shaped to follow a void which previously existed as a valley. this position establishes an open dialogue with the outside space, providing inhabitants with a fresh perspective of the land.

spaceworkers proposed two concrete slabs with concave sides. this framework is complimented by glass and wood inserts which unroll effortlessly between the two volumes. the construction features a central courtyard at the center of the building, offering a quiet place for reflection and contemplation. all of the rooms are organised around this area, providing a harmonious transition between interior and exterior. the general layout works in accordance to the outside space, using curved walls and a clean minimal aesthetic in keeping with the modernist feel of the dwelling.
