Beautiful Minimalist Retreat in Portugal: House in Leiria

minimalist home 17 Beautiful Minimalist Retreat in Portugal: House in Leiria

This fascinating looking residence was designed by architects Manuel Aires Mateus and is located in Portugal, in a high point, overlooking the city of Leiria. Minimalist and contemporary, the home was divided into two distinct areas, one for socializing and one for sleeping. The bedrooms are positioned below ground, with access to private patios that lead to the backyard. This way the sleeping area is secluded and no noise is strong enough to trouble a deep sleep. As you can observe in the photos below, this amazing house is not equipped with conventional windows. Instead it features “voids” in the ceiling which attract light indoors. Its interior arrangements are in complete aesthetic agreement with the minimalist exterior, which makes this an overall stunning residence. (Photos by FG+SG: Fernando Guerra, Sergio Guerra)
