Quinta Vilarinha is composed of three single-family houses joined together into a row. The parallelepiped volume, built parallel to the street, is composed of one underground floor plus three above ground floors. The lining of the volume combines aluminium panels and white reinforced concrete panels at the top, with solid wood slats on the bottom, which intensifies the visual unity of the whole. On the 2nd floor, the program assumes a more exclusive character materializing in a suite with a private living room and terrace. These spaces, fully open to the east and west sides, allow the full enjoyment of the view over the park and ocean.
