Built into a hillside in Alentejo, Portugal, the Cercal House is a modern addition to the rolling terrain. The dwelling takes the form of a traditional gabled structure while a sleek white facade and clean lines create a contemporary context. Its minimalist aesthetic continues on the interior where the presence of natural light creates a bright, airy atmosphere. The main living area occupies the center of the home. Fitted with a pair of sliding doors, the entire wall opens, removing all boundaries between the interior and the landscape and expanding the room out to a poolside terrace.
