Name: Casa 103
Location: Algarve, Portugal
Casa 103 is a minimalist house located in Algarve, Portugal, designed by Ultramarino. The residence is located in a historical center of a fishing village. The village is quite cultural, and the architects wanted the house to intervene in a balanced and harmonious way. In order to integrate with the surrounding architecture and history, the studio decided to explore the concept of “living behind the wall.” They created a facade which would serve as a physical barrier between the public and private areas while enhancing the visual connection with the village and river.
