This house, by architect Januário Godinho, has since its beginning the peculiarity of not totally occupying its lot, originally very narrow and facing the street. The house has a peculiar interior organization because of it. The construction has both modern and art deco references – in the simplicity of the volume accented by a high platband and the absence of corners – like some of the vernacular details in the rustic basis and granite frames. We should note that it was inhabited almost continuously since its construction, which results in a particular inner life: of the library, of the semi-basement, of Dr Alfredo Ribeiro dos Santos, to the furniture designed by artists and architects like Luísa Brandão, Sérgio Fernandez, José Manuel Soares and Matilde Seabra.
