Windowless House in Portugal by Aires Mateus & Associados

Located in Leiria, Portugal, this unique minimalist white house was designed by architects firm Aires Mateus & Associados.

“The private areas are at street level under the plot, around a central courtyard with rooms opening to private patios in a intimate environment.

The living rooms are around a void, that collects light from above and gazes the castle at the city center.”

  1. I can ‘get’ the windowless and underground elements – that’s no problem – but, HOW do these people actually LIVE?

    There are beds for sleeping – I see tables for eating, I’m sure there are appliances for preparing food – but, There Is More to Life than that! Do they read – do they have hobbies – do they Create Anything? This house is naked, BARE and without SOUL.
