The White House is located in the south of Portugal.
Beautifully clean lines and a tastefully chic interior, with two swimming pools and a magnificent view down to the Smugglers Cove below, this truly is a unique property.
The 'industrial look' has become a stylish and contemporary element in fashion and advertising and can be found in many photo locations.
Sophisticated fabrics, graceful models and the high technology of the car industry can often be seen across obsolete industrial sites, all characterised by profound history and worn by the ravages of stillness and time.
In Berlin and the east of Germany in particular numerous variations of these unpolished diamonds can be uncovered. Such locations are often hidden between the highest standards of modern architecture, and bigshrimp has tracked many of them down for use by the fashion and advertising industries.
bigshrimp scouts in all corners to fulfil the briefs of every agency - no matter how unusual or extraordinary their ideas might be.

This house, built high on a cliff, creates a dialogue between the organic forms of the landscape and the fabricated lines of the building. The multi-level integration between the artificial and natural spaces creates sheltered corners, catwalks and terraces with wonderful views; the swimming-pool appears to just rise from the rocks and merge with the sea.
Only a handful of rooms, all of them spacious and big windowed, comprise the ground plan. Kitchen, living-room and sitting-room create a completely open plan space, whilst the natural lines of the rock face form one of the walls in the master suite. White is the dominant colour, with the stainless-steel kitchen and Travertino marble floors providing that touch of colour.
