A home designed to live on the edge, literally. This house by Porto-based Correia/Ragazzi Aquitectos sits on the edge of many things. Edge of design, edge of a cliff and within the borders of a very special national park.

The owners, Mica and Eduardo Pinto Ferreira, have been Correia’s clients for more than a decade, and gave her carte blanche to create their dream house on the 5,000 square-meter site by the Cevado river – as long as no trees were cut and the 60 square-meter house (maximum allowed footprint for the site) was made of concrete. The house is located in Peneda-Geras National Park, along the Spanish border in northern Portugal, so the environment and its inviolability were crucial and the rules strict.
