Quinta do Lago, Algarve: 1984-89. This holiday home in the Algarve is located on a housing estate next to a golf course. Have no annexes and be white. In view of this, together with the client's wishes, I decided the house should take the form of a parallelepiped standing on the golf course. Typologically, the building is a cross between certain southern vernacular architectures and - strange as it seems - some Chinese buildings (I had just returned from a trip to Macau).
