A tailor-made 300 sqm single-storey villa in the heart of a golf club in Algarve, Portugal.

MARLENE ULDSCHMIDT ARCHITECT as Architects

Casa Arco Iris is a project which remodels the 1990s-built detached villa located adjacent to a golf course in the Algarve.

The concept specified the use of white marble, typical of Portuguese architecture during the past century. 

The use of the same material on all of the internal and external surface areas creates a collective feeling of fluidity and elegance which add to the sense of light and space. 

The architectural dark timber staircase provides a sculptured link between levels and is lit from above by a large skylight. 

Ultramarino, the in-house interior design element of the studio designed the ‘white concept’ for the whole interior, including the kitchen and bathroom elements. 

The gardens were landscaped and featured a meandering path that leads you on a gentle journey alongside a variety of established palm and olive trees.
