Mário Martins Atelier :: Elliptic House

Completed in 2014, the Elliptical House by Mário Martins Atelier is based on a geometric shape and volume carved by the landscape.
Located in the small village Luz in southern Portugal, the building sought to offer balance between fullness and emptiness, weight and airiness, light and shade. With its elliptical base, the house is built intentional sculptural and organic. The shape simulates the movements of the wind and the sea that want to embrace the wide floating oval which subtly delimits the central patio of the house.
