Sebastiao Moreira Casa Em Sabrosa
Nestled in a landscape where the Marão mountains meet the river Douro, the house known as Casa Sabrosa adapts sensitively to the easily sloping natural topography, merging with it. Closed on one side, partially sunken into the ground, it opens up completely on the other to the light and surroundings. The power of the design is rooted in its sequence of interior spaces unified by a large central corridor, a spatial link that connects the whole complex. A text by Francisco Aires Mateus introduces this notable work by fellow Portuguese architect Sebastião Moreira.
