Nestled amongst the olive, almond and oak trees on the hills of Faro, Casa Luum was designed as a peaceful holiday haven, far from the hustle and bustle of Portugal’s popular tourist destinations.
The four-bedroom villa was designed by architect Pedro Domingos, with minimalist aesthetics that embrace the local architecture. As a result, this elegant, modern home allows the visitor to feel as if they are living in the Portuguese countryside.
The villa is an example of modern sophistication, located in the heart of the Algarve, a region dotted with white homes, sandy bays and rocky cliffs and home to the Ria Formosa Natural Park.
The local, natural stone is used throughout: on the terrace, in the pool, on kitchen countertops and sinks, and helps integrate the home into the local landscape, while the interior uses natural wood trim and traditional fabrics to add warmth to an otherwise minimalist environment.
