Happy throwback to one of my most read blogs for 2017! I was, and I am still blown away by the two swimming pool features of this house in Portugal!

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

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 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

This project was designed with sleek lines and simple interior. The wood slat coverings at the concrete exterior walls can be closed to provide privacy.

The ground level pool is overlapped with one floating above, distinguished by a glass bottom.

According to Sarah Press, “this villa is an outstanding representation of modern luxury architecture that varies between air, water and nature itself”.
