Recently completed by Arqui+Architectura, this high-end and ultra modern private residence is located on a golf resort in the Algarve region of Southern Portugal. I know what you’re thinking; I didn’t know they played golf in Portugal either. But having such an illustrious space with a golf resort in your backyard only adds to the majesty that is Casa Vale Do Lobo.
Containing a spectacular views buoyed by floor to ceiling glass walls that make great use of the natural light and placidity of its environment, the architects were able to create a home that is at once bright and inviting, but also modern and not cold. One of the most amazing features of this house is the addition of the cantilevered infinity pool, which overflows from the basin into a much larger pool directly below.
Although this house is stunning, one may point to the fact that it’s location could possibly be bourgeois overkill. But if you’re going break a glass wall, better it be from a misplaced tee shot than a stone from a raucous teenager.
