Design, Planning and Construction of a 5-bed Villa – Foz do Arelho – Dr Donald Bruce / Mr David Rose

Donald and David had both owned property in Portugal for a number of years before deciding to pool their resources and purchase a plot of land at Foz do Arelho and to design and build a superior property. We were able to assist in the purchase of the land which enjoys stunning views over the lagoon and the Ocean.

The new owners wanted a substantial property of a traditional design and there followed a succession of meetings with Arq de Sousa to ascertain what exactly was required. Plans were finally submitted to the Planning Department and the green light was given for the construction of their house which was due to be completed in October 2006.

In reality it was handed over ahead of schedule and within the estimate. The new structure is spacious and full advantage was taken by the architect of its favoured position. The views from the living rooms and from the external terraces are priceless. Donald and David enjoy entertaining and the house was designed with this in mind.

The property is now a prominent and impressive feature in one of the most desirable areas around the lagoon.

The development of the garden areas is something which has excited Donald and David from the outset and we have liaised with the landscape gardening company to facilitate the creation of external paces which we are told are going to be very special.

These clients had acquired a superb plot overlooking the Obidos Lagoon and Atlantic Ocean and naturally wanted a villa that would make complement the quality of its location. The owners had already decided on a traditional exterior look but requested a modern design for the interior. I was able to sympathetically match the two convergent styles and the result is a large 5 bedroom house with a very modern and light interior. The use of interior walls in glass and doors of the same material allow complete exposure of the views to the occupant at all times. Further interior space and light are achieved by virtue of a skylighted atrium on entry to the hall.

Clients' Comments

"We used the Ennis Project Management to project manage the construction of a villa on the Portuguese coast. Planning began in 2004 and work on site in 2005. The Ennis input at all stages of the project has been invaluable and has enabled us to be confident that the work is being carried out well and to time and budget."
