Architect Vasco Vieira is the principal at Arqui+ Arquitectura, and is the brains behind this extraordinary home situated in the Algarve region of Souther Portugal. Apart from the phenomenal design, the “Casa Vale do Lobo” has two site-oriented mega bonuses as well: 1) it is nestled alongside the uber chic, uber elite, and uber gorgeous Vale do Lobo Golf Course (see it on Google Maps); and 2) it’s right beside the Atlantic Ocean with less than 400km of ocean separating itself from the African jewel of Casablanca, Morocco. The home is U-shaped, with one side devoted to living and the other side devoted to a beautiful wood deck for 100% pure leisure. But the real show-stopper is the raised razor blade-like concrete pool which also doubles as a waterfall. A seriously breathtaking home. Photos courtesy of FG+SG Architectural Photography.
