CasasNaAreia in Portugal.

If you’ve been aching for a peaceful escape that’s both eco and modern, we couldn’t think of a more stunning place to sit back and relax than Casas na Areia in Comporta, Portugal. Designed by architects Aires Mateus, this gorgeous retreat takes old masonry buildings and turns them into new, contemporary structures set upon the sand. Creating a delicate balance between the natural landscape and modern architecture, Aires Mateus’ design is able to evoke a poetic visual and visceral experience from its inhabitants.

Chalet Des Druns, Chamonix.

This vast chalet of 700m2 was constructed for luxurious holiday rentals and combines contemporary French Alpine architecture and design with the practical necessities for weekly high-end rentals for both summer and winter. Le Chalet des Drus has a sumptuous indoor swimming pool and spa area which is very rare to be found in Chamonix. There is also a gym, hot tub, hammam and cinema room – this chalet offers 5-star accommodation from top to toe! The use of these traditional materials contrasts beautifully with the modern design features such as the glass stairway and slate dining table using iron legs from the workshop of Mr Eiffel, (architect of the Eiffel Tower). This creates a stunning harmony respecting traditional building materials, and techniques with modern design features and technology.

Compound in the dunes by Ike Kligerman Barkley.

Compound in the dunes by Ike Kligerman Barkley is on a rolling site overlooking the Atlantic Ocean, this beach house brings together two contrasting ideas – nineteenth century Shingle Style design, and a contemporary preference for material and textural expression over architectural detail. While the exterior captures the local design aesthetic, the interior treats light, space and surface in a distinctly modern fashion. Photographer: Peter Aaron / Esto.

Interno Fraciscio by Studio Fanetti.

the apartment had such height that the firm has decided to use to split the space. It was given a second wood skin that gives a special atmosphere of uniformity. It looks like a block of wood from which was “carved a house” and the various local and furniture arise from the block by subtraction of matter. There seems to be no need for walls like a second skin made of larch. In the study and construction of this apartment, particular attention was paid to the combination and processing of materials: larch wood wax, as well as stone slabs in large format tailored to the floors, antique iron beams with treatment acid to the backbone of the loft and filling encaustic, also with wax finish, the walls of bathroom and kitchen. Coatings and fillings alternate shaved walls with plaster and deliberately left blank in order to lighten the effect paneling and markedly increase the perception of interior space. The internal design has resulted in the organization of the spaces designed in such a way as to make possible the more articulated and functional. The entrance opens onto the living area entirely in larch continues in the kitchenette. The living area, intentionally no continuity to other areas areas, then opens into a second space is amazing for the articulation of the flows of both visual and walkway. Opening the door of the large cube of wood leads to the sleeping area where a central staircase divides the two bedrooms and leads upstairs where we find the study on suspended double bedroom. A transparent floor opens up space otherwise a bit ‘stuffy. The tour continues in the area for guests with two large mattresses, sofas in so far as the ceiling closes truss.
