About House by the Sea

Coastal Elegance Meets Modern Living

Nestled in the serene cliffs of Estoril, Portugal, the “House by the Sea” emerges as a beacon of contemporary architecture. Designed in 2023 by the vision of Andrea Chicharo, it encompasses elegance and functionality, mirroring the coastal vibe. The residence greets visitors with expansive windows that frame the stunning seascape, inviting an interplay of natural light and open space in the living area.

Refined Simplicity in Design

Transitioning from the scenic outdoor view, the interior reveals a living room designed with meticulous attention to detail. Neutral tones and wooden accents foster a sense of calm, while bespoke furniture pieces offer both comfort and style. The dining area, adjacent to the living space, features a statement partition wall—a geometric marvel—that subtly defines the room without disrupting the flow.
