OTIIMA House is an architectural gem, perfectly integrated into nature. The house is tucked away in the mountainous and wooded Peneda-Gerês National Park in Northern Portugal, known for its natural beauty.

The building is largely made of wood resting on a cement base. The use of these materials is continued in the house. Large windows and exceptionally high sliding doors blur visual boundaries, blending the interior with the exterior. Another special feature of the house is the large open (multi) functional interior space, which is sparely furnished with design pieces, eye-catching details, and finished with wooden walls and ceilings that provide a warm ambiance.

The large central living room opens onto a terrace with an enviable view equipped with a hot tub and the unique SO1 design lamp (by Sarah Olaerts). Across the terrace in a detached concrete area is the ensuite master bedroom with organically shaped sanitary and a walk-in shower!
On the other side of the living room are the fully equipped custom kitchen, a dining area, and a second terrace. Stairs bring you to a "catwalk-like" mezzanine floor with two more double bedrooms with private bathrooms, a sauna, and a lounge area.

The outdoors are fully designed to make use of its extraordinary location; a (river) stream goes down and ends in a gorgeous natural swimming pool with a wooden deck where you can enjoy the serenity and greenery around you. On the lawn next to the pool - in the shade of the trees - you can dine in the open air at the long picnic tables.

If you can resist leaving this idyllic spot, you can be guided on hikes, Jeep tours, or be pampered with a dinner with organic products from the house. Also, a day out to the rural villages and beautiful churches in the area, a city trip to Braga and water sports at the nearby dams are absolutely worthwhile!
