Sambade House in Portugal designed by Spaceworkers

Designed by Portuguese architecture and design studio Spaceworkers®, Sambade House is a private single-family home that is located in Penafiel, Portugal.

Project description by architect:

Based on the genetic of the place, the intervention holds, as the main goal, the creation of a contemporary space without disturbing the peace of the countryside area.

A pure volume, with rectangular base, is adjusted to the ground and opens into the green landscape. The volumetric purity, desired by the customer, sets the mood for the project and the new inhabitant of the place is, now, one of the terraced fields of the perfectly balanced ground.

Thus, the act of inhabiting unfolds through the volume of concrete, pure, raw, adjusted to the ground, just waiting to grow old as the days go by... reflecting the life of the countryside.
