Re.canto House by Arquitetura27 – InteriorZine

A 120m² haven with a large living room, wine cellar, contemplative kitchen and a backyard. The name of the environment carries its essence, Re.canto (of the self). It was designed to be a space of connection.

The living room has few covering materials, enriching each chosen material. The use of Pau Ferro from Arauco evokes the past and the sophistication of Brazilian design, covering the back wall and the ceiling, creating a single block.

Located in the village of Gaüses in Alt Empordà, Spain, OAB – Office of Architecture in Barcelona has built a private residence for industrial designer/surrealist artist Pete Sans, and painter/mural artist Regina Saura.

CG House by Pedro Henrique Arquiteto

A place, that arises from an elevated plan in relation to the street, and opens itself onto a field, is defined by the large trees that give us visual sensations, experienced as a result of the various colour palettes that each season brings.
