We love a good modern gable. This 180-square-meter (about 1,937 square feet) house in Fartosa, Portugal—about 120 miles (197 kilometers) north of the capital of Lisbon—is a great example of the gable done right. Designed by Portuguese architect João Mendes Ribeiro, the relatively modest, two-story, stucco-clad-concrete house is set on land with a vineyard and olive trees, which sounds pretty idyllic. Minimal, whitewashed interiors feature wood floors, unadorned surfaces, and broad windows that frame views of the valley outside. A concrete wine cellar in the basement is a nice finishing touch to the general air of lowkey luxury.
