This simple and modern house designed by Pedro Reis, located in Melides, Grândola Municipality, Portugal. This house consists of two volumes that overlapping each other, create the shape of a cross. These two volumes offering two different areas where one area is more exuberant and exposed and the other more intimate and contained. The upper volume show the modern image of the house with large glass areas open offering great views to the surrounding, while the lower volume has clad with sheets of earth-coloured concrete and offers support and stability to the house. The kitchen act as the centre of the house and become the crossing-point for all movements such as entering, going through the inside and moving out into the garden.
