Casa Vale da Lapa

MARLENE ULDSCHMIDT as Architects

Casa Vale da Lapa is a project which remodels and extends a 1980s detached villa with sea views and is located in the Algarve, Southern Portugal. The concept transformed the existing architecture and internal layout into a contemporary and open plan style. The creation of a vast double height entrance space with a ‘floating’ staircase adds drama to the previously uninspiring house. The removal of several internal walls produced a series of flexible and fluid spaces which have strong physical connections to the beautiful garden and sea views beyond.

Ultramarino designed the interior concept – dark toned surfaces contrasting with the simple white walls, as well as the internal joinery and fittings including the custom made kitchen in order to complete the overall look.
