A traditional cabana style from Comporta Region, this 3 bedrooms villa, with a big living room, terraces and wonderful garden overlooking the rice fields is a second home for use throughout the year by the French client and his family. It was with this in mind that the owner challenged Neimann to take on the project. The brief was simple but demanding, as expected from a client who collects contemporary art: the style had to match what he’d seen in the Barracuda shop in Comporta.*
The project consisted of a long process of research to create a harmonious arrangement of colours, materials and forms while adhering to the budget. Neimann was inspired by the place and by the person. Above all, he wanted to give the house an identity through eclectic decor and handpicked objects, mixing 20th-century furniture in general – with pieces ranging from the late 19th-century all the way up to the 1980s – from a variety of sources: shops, antiquarians and fairs in Portugal and abroad, with which he created something unique and unrepeatable.
