Inspired by the Bauhaus movement, this modern hillside villa is a work of art. Designed by architect Mário Martins of design firm Mário Martins Atelier, this gem of a space boasts the best design lines in the contemporary architectural field.
Located on Algrave's rolling landscape in Portugal, 'Villa Escarpa' takes the form of a retro rectangular structure to pay homage to the Bauhaus philosophy -- which is based on the notion that form should follow function. Both the architect and clients wanted the space to be bold yet clean with straight lines and a vast amount of simple uncluttered spaces.
The modern hillside villa overlooks relaxing waves crashing into picturesque cliffs and a quaint little village.
Surrounded by olive, fig and almond trees -- which were planted to preserve the National Ecological Reserve which the home is built on -- 'Villa Escarpa' is the perfect minimalist home.
