The House designed to reduce its visual impact on the surroundings designed by Jorge Mealha Arquitectos Lda is located in Paço de Arcos, Lisbon, Portugal . This arrangement of different solids and voids, uses large plain surfaces and some in-between tensioned spaces to let light draw or reflect on the objects, emphasising geometry and proposing a changeable reading of form and space during the day.
Light is used as a main tool to draw this house. Interior space is always changing during the day – or even at night when full moon spreads silver light throughout – using either direct light or reflected light to create changeable graphic or tonal effects all trough walls and pavements. Externally, a precise positioning enhances the relation between the several solids, playing with its voids in between or accentuated balances.
