Modern single-family house blends harmoniously into the landscape

A modern family house, that fits perfectly into the landscape – this is how Hill Cork House can be described. We were totally fascinated by the new construction project by Contaminar Architects with an energy-saving concept.

A modern family house of concrete and glass was recently used by the Contaminar Architects completed. The single story building is located near Leiria, Portugal and covers 653 square meters. Designed according to the minimalist building principles, it consists of two structures that merge into one another. The concrete construction is loosened up by the ample glass insert. Closed to the street and the neighboring houses, the house opens up to the garden through several sliding glass doors. The facade is insulated with cork – the warm color of the natural material gives the property a homely look. The planted roof offers the opportunity to move life outside in summer. A large pool in the middle of the house divides the building into two – the sunlight-flooded living area and kitchen are located in the southern building volume, while the bathrooms and sleeping area are located in the northern building volume.

Modern family house – stylish furnishings

The minimalist house has been stylishly but sparingly furnished. The wooden floor and the cork-clad interior walls create a visual connection between the individual areas. The white fitted kitchen with a futuristic cooking island is extremely functional, in the living room several two-seater sofas form a cozy seating area, and in the bathroom the white bathtub invites you to relax after a long day at work.
