Name: DT House
Designer: Jorge Graca Costa
Location: Oeiras, Portugal
DT House is a minimalist home located in Oeiras, Portugal, designed by Jorge Graca Costa. The project focuses on applied energy-efficient principles by integrating accessible construction technologies. The residence sits atop a hill overlooking a magnificent surrounding landscape.
The architects explored the dichotomy between social areas of the lower level and private areas located on the upper floor. Since the designers wanted the house to utilize passive energy use, there was a focus on maximizing natural lighting and the cooling breeze from the nearby sea.
