The Lisbon based architect essentially created a simple box-like structure, but managed to make it beautiful! The two story home is roughly 7,500 square feet and is situated on a heavily vegetated piece of land in Estoril, Portugal.

The boxy gray structure has square and rectangular cut-outs which act as windows, patios, and doorways. A large living wall on the patio captures the essence of the home as Valsassina marries nature and architecture.

The wall is overflowing with plant life, and is complemented with a minimalistic stone and wood patio.

The land directly around the home is occupied by a recreational grass soccer field and a long swimming pool, then met by huge trees which surround the site for extra privacy.

At night, the Quinta Patino has a special glowing effect as a carefully constructed lighting system causes the trees to shine, and the structural cut-outs in the home to have a warm and soothing glow.
