Caniço, Portugal – Mayer & Selders
Built area: 180.0 m2

CCC House is an old Madeiran house that underwent renovation but has still retained its traditional design. Today, despite the modernized facelift, it symbolizes the harmonious relationship between the old and the new.
An extension was added to the existing structure. It’s linked to the main house by a covered area which functions as an outdoor dining place. The façade is made of pine wood and steel.
It has corner windows that offer unrestricted views toward the garden, cliffs, ocean, and islands. A water tank is set to become a swimming pool in the future. This is the cherry on top.
Notes from the Architect:
Renovation and extension of an existing typical madeiran house. The old, traditional and the new, contemporary part do not mix up but have each their own individuality. A covered area connects the two and offers common outside space. The new building forms at one part a patio with the existing, while its outer corner seeks the view of the cliff and the ocean to the south-east. The large but shallow water tank in the north will be maintained and transformed into a chemical-free “swimming-pond”.
