Site: This family villa is situated on a steep slope overlooking the bay of Funchal. The site presented some challenges as there is a level change of 40 meter across the site with a 7.5 meter height restriction.

Approach: The sculptural geometry of the roof plane mirrors the view to the coast line. Terracing timber boxes float below the sloping roof plane and are orientated to frame significant views.
