Bruno Dias Arquitectura has designed Casa Gloma near the village of Ansião, Portugal: two cement slabs define an architecture in simple forms, where nature acts as the only boundary

The starting point for the design of Casa Gloma, built on a small, gently sloping site, is a permanent contact with nature. Bruno Dias Arquitectura's studio organises the construction along a main axis which separates the private and social areas from the home

Casa Gloma is raised off the ground but still maintains some points of connection with nature, by creating small patios which underline the symbiotic relationship between the architecture and the natural area around it. The contour is defined by two organically shaped cement slabs, parallel to each other
