SousaSantos Arquitectos designed the Y House as a vision device in the medieval town of Obidos, Portugal.
The design was focused in a system that rules the way the inhabitant sees the outside world and simultaneously the way the outside sees the dwellers.
The big curved window creates a visual path that, like a camera traveling, reveal the image of the landscape. The idea of landscape as an image and its importance in the domestic living were the main design focus of this scheme.
