Located in the Caniçada Valley of Portugal is Gerês House, by the architects at Carvalho Araújo. Combining concrete and wooden elements, the design adopts a minimalist approach while resting on the hill of Portugal’s only National Park.

The horizontally-formed abode can be accessed via its upper level, and features immersive views of the lush landscape. Stepping inside, the industrial feel of the concrete is balanced through the use of wooden ceilings and walls.

The large open-plan living area lets in an abundance of natural light through its varying glass windows, which continue throughout the home.

Surrounded by nature, the dwelling features wooden decking that leads down to the pool – or there's a sheltered jacuzzi if you're in the mood for something a little more intimate.
