A modest-searching concrete mass from the street view, Casa de Mosteiro opens up to an airy modern day dream home when inside the private lot. A concept envisioned by Arquitectos Matos, the single-story residence is located on the outskirts of Santa Maria de Feira in Portugal, Spain.
The dark charcoal concrete facade is dramatic, specifically when set against the bold white walls and light woods which wrap the light-filled interiors. With an L-shaped courtyard system, the dwelling flows from living locations situated inside the longer zone to the intersection entranceway, then on to the bedrooms, bath and study comprising the other finish.
So remarkable are the custom walls of wood, specifically at the core unit along the bedrooms, which are as equally lovely from the outdoors viewpoint as they are from inside. This woodwork, even though itself sleek, manages to give a warm and earthy aesthetic within the a lot more intense, clean-lined interior spaces.
Minimalist interiors are tranquil in shades of grey, cream and pure white. The kitchen is a gleaming space of white-on-white with striking stainless steel accents such as in the slatted stove hood. The bay of frameless windows above the countertop open fully to the outside, welcoming fresh air and depositing organic light.
The home’s walls which line the courtyard are comprised of glass, making a seamless impact of indoor-outdoor living. Quickly outdoors, a wooden deck wraps the edge of the property, with a plunge pool nestled into 1 finish. Beyond this lounging terrace are grass and landscaped trees which can be enjoyed from any point of view from within this modern property.
A sentimental element, the rear privacy wall is constructed of stones from the previously current residence which had belonged to a family member. The shimmering green-tiled outdoor fireplace pops against the dark concrete and becomes a most unexpected style contribution–love this!
Rather deceiving from the neighborhood view, Casa de Mosteiro is a bright, contemporary dream property possessing a simplicity and serenity one could only want to live amongst.
