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.
Guedes Cruz Wall House
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.
The Pools and Patio
The homes’ exterior walls of slatted wood close off to provide privacy and protection from the strong Atlantic winds.
A large wall of glass on one side serves as a giant window that can open the home to the golf course and scenery.
Wood slat walkways connect the homes’ interior spaces.
And several of the homes exterior walls are covered with living plants.
