Geometric Design: Elliptic Residence by Mário Martins Atelier

Mário Martins Atelier has designed ‘casa elíptica,’ a residence located on a freely oblique area in Luz, Portugal. The design project, photographed by Fernando Guerra, invokes the fluidity and balance of the coastal area while welcoming the real, curvilinear forms of the scenery.

The blended interior and exterior spaces of the geometric residence are both an exceptional white, a characteristic of several homes that stretch simultaneously the seaside hill.

Mário Martins atelier has attempted to form a combination with the current, neighboring residences to the east, linking back to the idea of ‘balance’ which rests at the bottom of the geometric design.

The whitewashed residence blends both interior and exterior spaces to create a building that displays both the straight and flowing looks of its enclosing coastal landscape.

This sense of balance can be observed everywhere in the modern house. The thickness of the elliptical base differentiates considerably upon the Oculus that hovers over the outdoor patio area — producing a powerful bond among both positive and negative spaces, frequency and airiness, and light and shade.

 

“It is in this ambience that the house should be experienced, without being aware of where the house begins and ends. The fluidity and lightness of its organic design reflects natural shapes, thus defining the house architecturally in its natural setting. And that is the intention for when the building work is completed.”
