Casa Varatojo by Atelier Data, Portugal from certain angles seems as though it's an alien that has landed on Earth. Named after the hill it sits atop, on the eastern edge of the growing town of Torres Vedras, Casa Varatojo has been designed by Lisbon-based architects Aterlier Data.

Carefully sculptured in line with its natural environment, the house's position on the hill rewards its occupants with unobstructed views over the town and the landscape beyond.

With a client that was flexible in terms of program and design, the architects were faced with a polygonal plot situated on a north-facing hilltop where wind gusts and temperatures are relatively low. Atelier Data worked to turn these conditions into opportunities.
