Select Matthew Hilton products have been photographed at a very special residence in Portugal, Fonte Boa. Designed by João Mendes Ribeiro, the small estate, with a vineyard and olive grove, is located in the Rabaçal valley, surrounded by the Jerumelo, Sicó and Espinhal mountains.
Reinterpreting the traditional single-family housing typology, the house is a two-storey rectangular volume with a zinc pitched roof. Inside, both floors are organised in three parts, with a core staircase and utility area that, on the ground floor, divides the dining from the living room and, on the first floor, separates the two main bedrooms. The use of both big openings and small windows in the home serves to intensify the connection between the indoor and outdoor spaces.
This sensitively designed modern home is the perfect setting for Matthew Hilton's designs, reflecting a shared attention to detail and functionality, as well as a reverence for natural materials.
