Appreciation towards ARQ TAILOR’S for providing the following description:

海滨住宅(Sea Front Villa)俯瞰着大海,拥有着绝佳的地理位置。它位于Estoril – Cascais地区内一个名为Quinta da Marinha的度假胜地内,这里因其可爱的沙滩、古老而迷人的宫殿和精致的生活方式而被人们当成葡萄牙的里维埃拉(Riviera,地中海沿岸区域)。该家庭住宅的基地面积为3,050平方米,建筑面积高达1,068平方米,拥有12间房间,旨在展示一种优雅的、现代的建筑和设计。

Sea Front Villa gets its name by being a unique front line luxury property overlooking the sea. It’s located in Quinta da Marinha, a well-known selected resort in the Estoril – Cascais area, considered the Portuguese Riviera for its lovely dune extended beaches, ancient enchanting palaces and refined lifestyle. Laying in a plot of land of 3,050 m2 and built area of 1,068 m2, this twelve room family house was intended to be a showcase for elegant, contemporary architecture and design.

In order to fullfill this expectation, the project would respect the amazing beauty of the sea view and nature surroundings, by using pure, well framed lines, big volume of fenestration and glass, as special feature.

To serve this indoor- outdoor dialectic purpose, we have specifically elaborated extra slim window frames, of almost non-existent expression, to allow huge spans of glass instead of walls but with a dilution in the space that usually frames don’t have.

Also, materials and finishes were sourced from around the world and selected for their quality as for beauty, rarity and sustainability. Warm woods cover the floor, ceilings and wardrobes, unifying and enlarging the rooms while adding a peaceful, natural quality to living spaces.

Some other options and extras reinforce the projects differential aspect, like extended ceiling height or floor-to-ceiling door. Other example is the bathroom equipment with high performance shower and extra-large tubs, stunning range of chrome and nickel bathroom fittings. All sanitary facilities were covered with marble coming from chosen stone blocks (including a Thasssos block) of which all sections were previously defined, then cut and executed to measure, customizing each bathroom.

Furthermore, the villa contains simple life enhancing technology for people who are not technically aware, yet want to enjoy the benefits of modern live. For instance, light and temperature are balanced by detectors that help ensure the property is constantly comfortable. Light levels, inside and outside the property, are controlled and all the window blinds are automatically corrected, to prevent sunlight damage to decoration and furniture. Also, certain windows are opened or closed, to maintain ventilation and keep the villa cool with minimal environment impact.

最后,住宅还有一个充满着自然光线的地下室空间,其中包括了一个室内的泳池兼spa空间、家庭影院、带有服务空间的客房公寓、车库和一系列储存空间等。作为本项目的建筑师,Arq Tailor’s十分荣幸能够有机会设计这座独栋式的现代住宅, 采用精致的材料将其建造起来,并通过这个项目表达对环境问题的关注。

Last but not least, there’s the basement, a natural light area that houses an indoor pool & spa, home cinema, guest apartment with two service bedroom, garage and storage facilities. Arq Tailor’s is glad to have helped create a singular contemporary design house, refined materials based and attentive to environmental issues.
