The Dune House is a luxurious yet unpretentious beach house in the village of Comporta, which lies on the doorstep of scenic rice fields and mountainous Parque Natural da Arrabida.


The idea was to create something next to the ocean but respecting the surrounding nature. During construction, the impact on the environment was minimal and not a single tree was cut. Around 100 new pine trees were planted inside and outside the house, plus more than 200 native plants. The idea is to see the house completely enveloped by pine forest in a few years.


Comporta Dune House is set across 400 square metres and positioned on top of the dunes. It features a 60-metre-long corridor and six symmetrically positioned rooms that can accommodate up to 8 adults and 6 children. Also within the design are four interior gardens that bring the outdoors in. An open-plan kitchen, living and dining area overlooks an outdoor patio and the in-ground swimming pool.
