Windowless House in Portugal Aires Mateus & Associados

Located in Leiria, Portugal, this unique minimalist white house was designed by architects firm Aires Mateus & Associados. "The private areas are at street level under the plot, around a central courtyard with rooms opening to private patios in a intimate environment. The living rooms are around a void, that collects light from above and gazes the castle at the city center." Photos by: Fernando Guerra, Sergio Guerra Source: Archdaily
