Based in Lisbon, Aires Mateus and Associates is known for works that display a sharp geometry, formal balance of volumes, and candid and complex shapes. Attentive to the relationship with the surrounding context, as well as the privacy and use of space, the architects have built a reputation with an unmistakable character. This special edition offers a comprehensive overview of their private work, dwellings that are full of light and at the same moment concealing and hermetic. From surprising urban insertions to integrations in the natural landscape and more, the organisation, continuity, and quality of these spaces is masterful. With an essay by José Manuel Pedreirinho.
