QUINTA PATINO, CASCAIS

Steve Morris has exchanged Saint Tropez for Cascais. Near the beach, quiet, bright, and safe, it seemed the best place to settle with his family. Used to coordinating construction work, he decided to design his own house and lead all the work. His concept started with the kitchen as a centerpiece, so he didn’t risk handing over the kitchen area to an architect or to himself, as it would play a major role in his home as the high spot of the entire ground floor.

THE HEART BEAT OF THE HOME

The defined space for the kitchen was the center of the ground floor, an open space designed for the living area. The kitchen would be the centerpiece of the floor, dividing the family zone from the formal one. It was our first concern to make sure the kitchen would serve both areas, plus the garden, with equal efficiency.

DESIGN PHILOSOPHY

That said, we decided to design two islands, each facing a designated area of ​​the ground floor, supported by a side elevation with columns for appliances, and another elevation with bases and wall units to deal with the dirty dishes. This positioning of the ‘chefs space’ allows integration with ALL of the living spaces. The islands would face the formal dining area, and the family sitting area, and even cover the outside space, all at once.

ENHANCING LIFESTYLE

Also, the blending of the natural appearance of the materials chosen with the refined, organic, simplicity of the rest of the home. Functionality of man-made materials, but with a natural appearance that matches the rest of the home.

ABOUT THE LOCATION
