STONE HOUSE BY THE SEA in Sardinia by Parisotto+Fomenton Architetti

Wednesday, January 25th, 2017

Article source: Parisotto+Fomenton Architetti

The house is located on the east coast of Sardinia, facing the islands of Tavolara and Molara.

The main objective of the projects (both the renovation of the existing part and the building of the new wing of a holiday house for a family) above all was to set a dialogue with the natural context, so peculiar and to remove everything that did not belong to the place. We, as architects, wanted to take the best out of traditional materials in a very contemporary way which is our recognizable mark.

The PI Penthouse in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil by Paula Martins Arquitetura, Interiores e Detalhamento

Sunday, January 22nd, 2017

Article source:  Paula Martins Arquitetura, Interiores e Detalhamento

This old three story penthouse has been fully remodelled from a terrible condition, and is now perfect for a family with children. The apartment faces Guanabara’s Bay and comes with an astonishing view of Rio de Janeiro, Sugarloaf and Christ the Redeemer. Most of the original walls have been demolished and the areas rearranged, creating more open spaces, and meaning each bedroom now has its own en-suite bathroom. The dark interior and heavy atmosphere have been completely replaced by beautiful light and open space. The facades and roof are insulated, and all the outside walls covered with tiles to avoid constant maintenance.
