Located on the vast territory of Alentejo, Casa Azul by Ricardo Bak Gordon emerges from an extensive tank leaning against a wall facing south, as if it were a sounding board for the entire landscape.

On the other side of the wall are the social spaces of the house and two rooms that act as places of transition between interior and exterior, fundamental for daily life. The different private spaces gravitate around a small interior patio.

The building's geometric arrangement and the wide windows and openings were designed to bathe the residents in light as well as providing multiple places to admire the natural landscape outside.The rest of the home is arranged around an enclosed internal courtyard that contains a small pool. Each of the three bedrooms has an en suite bathroom.

The complete house is lined with lime mortar and insulated from the outside with cork. The shape and geometry of the spaces, the prominent openings, and the emergence of this materiality give the house a sense that is difficult to recognize from the images.
