With 2 swimming pools, one of which has a glass bottom and floats above the other, the concrete, wood and glass Wall House in Portugal designed by Guedes Cruz Architects is a bit of Paradise perched on a golf course.

A large modern concrete, glass and wood home, the Wall House is most distinguishable by its two exterior swimming pools.

Anchored by a large patio that opens to the outdoors, the home’s pools run perpendicular to each other, the above pool with a glass bottom from which you can see the lower pool.
