Casa do Geres Project in Portugal is located on a steep slope in the Caniçada Valley where there was a small house and a stream. The existing building was located in an upper level of the land eventually liable to small landslides, which ultimately determined its demolition and the location of the new construction.
The new construction relates with the land in a very spontaneous way, taking advantage of its steep slope, the small stream and of the privileged view over the landscape.
