Casa de Mosteiro by Arquitectos Matos

View all 35 Photos

Just outside beautiful Santa Maria da Feira Arquitectos Matos built a lovely L shaped home concentrating design on the courtyard gardens, simultaneously screening the bustling road to the North side of the home. The longer wing holds all the main living space, the shorter wing all the sleeping quarters.  A stellar, spacious deck hugs the inner side opening access to the gardens no matter what room you are in the house unifying the different areas and intensifying the various experiences within the family. A finishing touch outlines the backyard landscape called the “memory wall” made of stones from the home that used to stand here a long time ago. Photography by Joao Morgado

Allison Parker is a proud stay at home mom maintaining a full schedule kissing boo boos and passing out hugs just because. Her days many times are spent between the garden and the kitchen. From a journey of learning whole food eating habits, she's taken on the challenges of baking bread, muffins and cakes from scratch and filling the cellar shelves with scores of her own canned goods each year. Writing is one of those things she does because its part of who she is. That and it's a nice break from the never ending work that comes with raising a family.
