How would you describe the Dune House in a nutshell?
The Dune House is a luxurious yet unpretentious beach house in the village of Comporta, which lies on the doorstep of scenic rice fields and mountainous Parque Natural da Arrabida.
What is the story behind the Dune House, what was your inspiration to create it?
The idea was to create something next to the ocean but respecting the surrounding nature. During construction, the impact on the environment was minimal and not a single tree was cut. Around 100 new pine trees were planted inside and outside the house, plus more than 200 native plants. In a few years, I want to see the house completely enveloped by pine forest.
How would you describe the atmosphere, architecture and interior design of Dune House?
The interiors are bright and fresh with a peaceful atmosphere.
To you personally, what is so special about the Dune House?
To me, it’s the continuity between the interior and exterior spaces and the integration of the house with the surrounding sand dunes and pine trees.
