Discovering the holiday homes and weekend huts worldwide, recently featured in the pages of Floornature.
Our journey begins in Brazil with the weekend home designed in São Paulo by spbr arquitectos and the project by Perkins + Will Architecture for a house built around a fixed natural point: a flamboyant tree in a large garden. Still in Brazil, en route from São Paulo to Rio de Janeiro, in the endless valleys of Catacuba is a holiday home that expresses all the atmosphere of its location, designed by studio mk27 and Marcio Kogan. In Sydney, architect Luigi Rosselli has designed for the restoration of a residential building in Federation Queen Anne style, a veranda with various possibilities of configuration and levels of permeability between the interior and exterior.
In Europe, art and nature are the fundamental elements of the interior design of a villa by Studio Marco Piva with local architects EGO Architecture of Egest Goxhaj & Partners. The relationship with the landscape, including vineyards and a valley, is the feature of “Quiet House” designed in a village in Southern France by architects Nadine Chambon Fayard and Laurent Fayard of Artelabo. A project where the interior and exterior is continually in tension is Casa Cabo de Vila by the Spaceworkers studio. We end with a research project by Snøhettastudio, which references the Gapahuk, a traditional Norwegian hut.
