Contemporary House Design in Pousos, Leiria, Portugal by Ricardo Bak Gordon

This is a two stories house that takes up an unleveled terrain, taking just one level to the street front side. The house fills a longitudinal band centered in the plot that determines to main gardens, one at the entrance and plain; the other one, near the scarp and facing the city.

When arriving, only four volumes appear, welded together with a full straight lower level. This operation allows Bak Gordon to diminish the impact of the 815 sqm construction area, and contributes to the organization of the house program.

The four volumes also define several outside spaces that enhances the house living.
