A new house in Lagos, Portugal, by Kerimov Architects has been designed to blend in with its natural surroundings. The 800 Sq M home is located on a cliff overlooking the ocean and was built to meet the requirements of the local municipality that it should be “practically invisible” and “minimally change the local landscape.”
The house is made up of a series of interconnected volumes that are clad in natural materials, including stone, wood, and glass. The roof is covered in vegetation, and the windows are positioned to frame views of the surrounding landscape. The result is a home that is both modern and environmentally friendly, and that appears to have been built into the cliff itself.
The house has been designed to be energy-efficient, with features such as solar panels and rainwater harvesting. It also has a number of sustainable features, such as a green roof and a composting system. The house is set to be completed in 2023.
The design concept for the Hidden House was to create a home that would blend in with its natural surroundings and minimize its impact on the environment. The architects achieved this by using natural materials, such as stone, wood, and glass, and by carefully integrating the house into the cliff.
The house is made up of a series of interconnected volumes that are arranged in a way that maximizes views of the ocean and the surrounding landscape. The roof is covered in vegetation, which helps to camouflage the house from the air. The windows are positioned to frame views of the landscape, and the interior spaces are designed to be open and airy.
The Hidden House has been designed to be energy-efficient and sustainable. It features a number of sustainable features, such as solar panels, rainwater harvesting, a green roof, and a composting system. These features will help to reduce the house’s environmental impact and make it more self-sufficient.
The Hidden House is a unique and innovative design that demonstrates how modern architecture can be integrated into the natural landscape. The house is both sustainable and energy-efficient, and it is sure to be a popular destination for those who want to enjoy the beauty of the Portuguese coast.
