Urban Sketchers Portugal Meeting - Casa de Santa Maria Cascais 17/4/16

Margarida Ornelas

We had an Urban Sketchers meeting on 17/4 in na casa de Santa Maria in Cascais.

This house has one of the most beautiful views in Cascais and a large group of sketchers met to draw inside and outside the house, a Rui Lino´s architect project.

Near Casa Santa Maria we have the Santa Marta Lighthouse, with its white and cobalt blue tiles. The lighthouse is a symbol of Cascais and also the logo of our Paint in Portugal project. 




“This house was built in 1902 by Jorge O’Neill, a direct descendant of the Irish royal family, who in the late 19th century followed the example of the Portuguese Court and chose Cascais as his summer retreat. It was designed by Raul Lino, one of the most respected Portuguese architects of the 20th century."


 

"Etched into the Cascais landscape, and forming an integral part of the Santa Marta Lighthouse Museum and Condes de Castro Guimarães Museum & Library complex, the house is notable for its typically Mediterranean architectural style with lots of natural light and strong Moorish influences, including some impressive horseshoe-shaped arches and tiles.

The decorative richness of this house is apparent in the beautiful 17th century painted tiles and magnificent oil-painted wooden ceiling.”

Encontro Diários Gráficos Casa de Santa Maria, Cascais dia 17/4

 Foi no dia 17 deste mês o Encontro dos Urban Sketchers na casa de Santa Maria em Cascais.

É uma das mais bonitas vistas de Cascais e juntou-se um grupo grande para desenhar o interior e exterior da casa, um projeto do arquiteto Rui Lino. 

“Foi mandada edificar por Jorge O’Neill em 1902, descendente direto da Real Casa Soberana da Irlanda, que nos finais do século XIX, seguindo o exemplo da Corte Portuguesa, escolheu Cascais para estância de veraneio. Trata-se de um projeto de Raul Lino, um dos mais representativos arquitetos portugueses do século XX.

Indissociável da paisagem de Cascais, no conjunto que forma com o Farol Museu de Santa Marta e o Museu-Biblioteca Condes de Castro Guimarães, a Casa de Santa Maria reflete uma tendência arquitetónica tipicamente mediterrânica, valorizando a luz e a influência árabe, com arcos em ferradura e azulejos como elemento decorativo.

A riqueza decorativa desta casa pode ser apreciada nos seus belos azulejos do século XVII e no seu magnífico teto de madeira pintado a óleo.”
