The awarded Gerês house is located on a steep slope in the Caniçada Valley in Portugal. The contemporary building consists of two elements, a large Thermowood volume that rests on a concrete base, which extends over the land and on the water line. The use of Lunawood and concrete extends inside the house, which does not seek a conventional program, but rather large, functional and multipurpose spaces, where pleasure and work are mixed. The facade and ceiling are made of Lunawood Thermo timber boards to achieve a rustic and interesting look.
