Camarim have designed a magnificent hillside home overlooking Portugal's Serra da Estrela, the highest mountain range in the country. Casa na Gateira is a Z-shaped property featuring multiple spaces, each on a different level, in order to adapt to the sloping terrain and dramatic landscape.

The house's core is split into two levels, as you enter the home at the upper story. Located between the living room and the master bedroom is a patio that extends out towards the swimming pool, as it also in turn generates ascending air flow across the house during the warm weather months and provides intensive insulation for fall and winter.

And while every space rests on its own level, each area also has direct access to the outdoors, evoking an enhanced sense of space, freedom and cohesiveness with nature.

After getting a detailed look at Casa na Gateira, be sure to check out this unique two-story Japanese home that has a giant hat-life roof.
