A remodel of a white detached villa with a sea view in Algarve
Casa Vale da Lapa is a project which remodels and extends a 1980s detached villa with sea views and is located in the Algarve, Southern Portugal.
The concept transformed the existing architecture and internal layout into a contemporary and open plan style.
The creation of a vast double-height entrance space with a ‘floating’ staircase adds drama to the previously uninspiring house.
The removal of several internal walls produced a series of flexible and fluid spaces which have strong physical connections to the beautiful garden and sea views beyond.
Ultramarino, the in-house interior design element of the studio designed the interior concept: dark-toned surfaces contrasting with the simple white walls, as well as the internal joinery and fittings including the custom-made kitchen in order to complete the overall look.
