From this central building passages lead to a lower kitchen and dining room to the east, and three bedroom pavilions to the north, south and west.

According to London-born Alfonso Fernandes, the managing partner of the Lisbon-based practice, the scheme was ‘based on the main aspects of traditional Portuguese architecture’ and paid ‘special attention to the balance and harmony’ between each of the blocks.
