FeaturedHouse JC by Mário Alves

Welcome to House JC, an impressive two-story house designed in 2022 by Portuguese architect Mário Alves and located in the hillside of Quinta da Portea, Coimbra, Portugal.

This modern house was designed to take full advantage of the breathtaking views and excellent sun exposure while maintaining privacy. The house was designed around the idea of mass subtraction and decomposition to create outdoor spaces within the volume itself, merging the interior with the exterior. Its white materiality exposes the simplicity of the design and the plan, connecting the surrounding green space with the interior of the house, making it a true element of the local landscape.
