Barrocal house

A house that respects the integrity of the Alentejo landscape

The Barrocal house was created from the traditional Mediterranean way of living in the Alentejo, combining it with the modernity of the hospitality project of which it’s part of. It reflects the sensitivity taken towards sustainability whether regarding place, local culture or community.

This proximity to history, the climate, the light, the vegetation and the granitic outcrops is developed in a house concept that favours integrity with the natural elements and the views, as well as a sense of privacy combined with this intense relationship with the landscape. This house, which is born among stones and trees, is like them, simple, stripped and vernacular in its essential forms: from hand-made bricks to the use of lime and local stone (granite, limestone and shale), to the inclusion of salvaged tiles, roof terraces, entrances in deep recesses and prominent chimneys.

São Lourenço do Barrocal in-house team ​

With a multidisciplinary in-house team, São Lourenço do Barrocal provides future residents with the possibility of contracting services that support the development, management and supervision of the project in its various aspects, from architecture to landscaping, lighting and interior design.

The plots where these houses can be built have areas ranging from 4.710 sq. m. to 11.290 sq. m., depending on the topography and geology of the landscape. Each plot of land represents a “barrocal”, which is a series of granite outcrops that created natural crevices sheltered by oaks and olive trees.
