CASAS do FORTE
The name “Casas do Forte” comes from the real estate development’s views of the imposing São João da Barra fortress. Its architecture references the rich legacy and characteristics of the Mediterranean, bringing together both contemporary and traditional architecture.
Architecture and the Project
Simple materials and forms promote a bioclimatic architecture that connects residents to local Algarvian values. The outside landscaping was designed to create shady niches that provide the homes with greater privacy. The choice of tree and plant life took into account both the region’s characteristics and environmental benefits. They include a series of footpaths that are ideal for sunset strolls. In terms of amenities, the development also offers poolside facilities with a changing room, a small gym and a reception area.
