Blue House in Grândola

Ricardo Bak Gordon 


In the municipality of Grândola, which belongs to Setúbal District in Portugal’s Alentejo región, stands this 375-square-meter residence built by the Lisbon firm Bak Gordon. The house is all clad in lime mortar and insulated with cork from the outside. The spaces are laid out around a small inner courtyard. The geometrical composition presents volumes of different heights adapted to the slope of the site. A swimming pool is attached to the south side of the building, while on the north, recesses optimize views of the surroundings.
