I’m blown away by the two swimming pool features in this house in Portugal!

With 2 amazing swimming pool designs, the architectural art was conceptualized and designed by Guedes Cruz Architects. The one swimming pool has a glass bottom that floats above the other which makes this paradise.

The Wall House is most distinguishable by its 2 exterior swimming pools.

The homes’ exterior walls of slatted wood close off to provide privacy and protection. The house is anchored by a large patio that opens to the outdoors.

“This minimalist concept focuses on the natural elements of the surrounding landscape. On one of its side, the villa features an expansive glass wall that can be opened to create a direct connection to the outdoor living spaces” – Sarah Press
