Portugal Architect Takes Charge – build your own dunes!

You know the old adage, “if Muhammad can’t come to the mountain…” Well, architect Luis Pereira Miguel of Lisbon-based Pereira Miguel Arquitectos brought the mountain to Muhammad. His vision for this amazing modern house was a design undulating among the sand dunes. The problem was that there were no dunes in this Grandola, Portugal location. So the architect built two crescent-shaped dunes, and Casa Monte na Comporta was incorporated beneath them, its hard angular facade of concrete, wood and glass protruding from under the soft sand. Despite being new construction, the house (and the dunes) looks like it’s been there forever and a day, with an ancient, organic yet modern cave-like aesthetic. This low-profile single-storey house is configured in a skewed X shape, with each wing occupied by a separate function affording privacy and organization. Step outside the door and your feet hit the warm sand, making you feel like you’re stepping out onto your own private beach.
