Private Housing in Cifães

House in Tendais, Portugal.
The connection between each room is vital.
Take, for instance, the corridor that crosses the house. In here, the natural light not only allows one to see, but also gives the inhabitant a sense of distance and time. This is important, because the inhabitant needs time, to truly appreciate the landscape view that is given to him, once he reaches the living room.
He needs shade, to appreciate light.
He needs reclusion, to appreciate openness.
