Portuguese studio Ultramarino | Marlene Uldschmidt Architects explore the concept of “Living behind the Wall” through this single family house in the Fishing Village of Ferragudo, Portugal.

“The historic center of Ferragudo is an extremely sensitive area to work in and we believed that our intervention should be balanced harmonious and above all integrate with the surrounding architecture and history” say architects.

The challenge was to create a facade which would be a physical barrier between the public and private areas whilst enhancing the visual connection with the village and the river.

“The difficult topography of the site meant that our concept would need to allow for the design of the internal space to strengthen their visual connection with the rest of the village and beyond. The concept we chose was to use the changes of level within the site in order to achieve this goal.”

Another challenge of this concept was to create a light and airy feeling within the building. Architects created a vertical well of light that links all levels to achieve this. In order to balance the simple white walls natural materials of wood and stone in earthy tones where chosen.
