The VA House is a modern residential project that has been completed by Atelier d’Arquitectura J. A. Lopes da CostaThis modern home is located in Torreira, Portugal. It adopts the planned site in the subdivision, being the upper floor slightly offset from the ground floor to create volume animation that provides areas for shelter and shade.

From the architects: ” The house emerges with two overlapping structures topped by a triangular element (the stairs leading to the terrace). The lower structure, more transparent and more “fragile”, supports the higher structure, dimmer and containing more rhythmic openings, where small volumes – the balconies – punctuate to the South.
The villa, more closed to the North, shelters the entrance through a paved path that also leads to the garage.
It faces mainly the East and the South, to the Ria and the sun. To the West a courtyard was created to support the kitchen and the laundry. “
