Three courtyard house in Pinheiros de Azeitao, Portugal by Extrastudio

Sunday, January 17th, 2016

Article source: Extrastudio

The house is located in a small village 25km south of Lisbon, within a natural park whose name Azeitao, derives from Arabic, Az-zeitum – the olive grove. Predominantly a rural region, the area has a hot climate, perfect for the production of wine and olive oil. The clients, a couple of agronomists with two children, inherited a long, narrow plot in the middle of the village and decided to move from their apartment, looking for a different way of living.

House#01 in Vigevano, Italy by Andrea rubini architetto

Saturday, January 16th, 2016

Article source: Andrea rubini architetto 

Project house#01 is the result of a 80 square meter apartment (end 1950s) renovation in Vigevano.

I tried merging different cultures, from the love for designers AG Fronzoni and Prouvè on the one hand and my wife’s Scandinavian influence on the other. The outcome is a mix of contemporary elements – tied to our chronological age – accompanied by items from the ’50s/60s that are linked to the age of the building we live in.
