Casa Colina in Madeira

New Portuguese Villa: Contemporary Bay of Funchal Property design by SAOTA Architects

22 Oct 2015

Design: SAOTA Architects

Location: Bay of Funchal, Madeira, Portugal

The brief for Casa Colina was to maximise on the views of the Madeira coastline framing the sweeping slopes overlooking the sea.

Casa Colina in Madeira

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.

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.
