Italian architect Leonardo Marchesi has a penchant for simple, light-hearted designs. Recently, in collaboration with a friend, he designed a house in Magoito, Portugal, that takes inspiration from a barn.
Leonardo Marchesi is no stranger to Imagicasa by now. With House in Colares and House in Abydos, the architect already has some impressive projects on his record of achievements. He now added the House in Magoito to his list of achievements, which he designed in collaboration with his friend Gonçalo Duarte Pacheco.
The house is located in the small Portuguese town of Magoito, north of Cascais. The property is close to the sea, on a plot that used to belong to a wider land full of sea pines. The dwelling is described by the designers as an ‘abstraction of a barn’.
The veranda is the main source of light for the sunset area.
The layout of the project consists of two main parts. The private section contains the bedrooms, studio and bathroom and enjoys a beautiful view of the sunrise every day. From the communal areas, namely the kitchen and living room, you can enjoy the sunset.
The residence has a sloping roof, which guarantees the exposure needed for solar panels on the one hand and a high ceiling height on the other. Marchesi and Pacheco also provided the residence with a veranda, which is the main source of light for the common areas and the sunset area.
