Brief Description

The Golden Gate Villa project is a single family luxury residence in the coastal resort town of San Lourenco, in the Algarve region of Portugal. The Owners selected a lot in consultation with the Architect that offered views of a nature preserve adjoining a championship golf course. The lot however had certain restriction as to siting of the home within a very confined building envelope. By design, the home is organized as two wings with multiple levels that follow the natural grade of the lot. The wings of the home are angled to take advantage of the best views and allow for screening of views from adjacent neighbors. Privacy for the family outdoor living space and pool is therefore ensured. Materials and details of the home are consistent with the architecture and materials of the region but with systems utilizing the latest technology for the comfort of the homeowners. The Golden Gate Villa won the Quinta do Lago Gold Award for Residential Design. The Golden Gate Villa won the Quinta do Lago Gold Award for Residential Design.
