Built in a wonderful location on the sea in Luz-Lagos, Portugal, by architect Mario Martins, House Colunata sets a contemporary aesthetic against the glorious surrounding environment. Using local building techniques and locally-sourced materials, the building was built to maximise the amazing panoramic views and yet provide effective solar orientation and wind protection.
