This site sits near the top of Algarve's highest mountain. The topography is very steep and challenging. We set the house in 3 levels: The top being the car arrival zone. The intermediate being the house and pool. The lower level being the detached studio and lower garden. Planters, rock gardens and retaining walls were some of the tools used to control the levels and obtain the great rewards of this site: the stunning long views to the Algarve sea shore. The Foia House is a place for contemplation, relaxation and connection.
