Today, we’re looking at some homes that are situated by the edge of water. Whether it be lake sea or river, a waterside residence is the envy of many and, for those that do own one, a pleasure to reside in -even if it is briefly. Peace, serenity, calm, freedom and well-being can all be found by the waters edge so, in this respect, were taking a look at some of our designs that would usher in even more of such an effect on you! Enjoy…
This house is situated in Salento, Puglia. A notable quality is the recovery work that has been done to the typical, old pagliara style construction. Surrounded by olive groves and overlooking the sea, this small villa is in perfect harmony with the landscape, recalling the traditions of Salento, with its characteristic forms.
Anchor, Mallorca, part of the Balearic archipelago. This example of modern architecture is what one finds quite often in western Europe, around the cost. According to the tastes of many and frequented by holidaymakers from all around the world, a villa, such as this one, is even a popular choice for our expatriate community there!
Staying in Spain, we come next to this strong architectural project. This house seems to be the natural continuation of the rock, upon which it is built, and simply carved out. A stone base establishes the rhythm of continuity whilst the white top pays tribute to the clouds.
The lake can be an excellent solution for vacationing, for some it will never be the same as the sea, but, realistically, it offers a very different experience. Here, our house opens itself up through a glassed front (or rear glazing, depending on how you look at it), looking out onto a gorgeous lake -imagine waking up to this on a misty morning! What a spectacle it would be.
Posillipo is a residential suburb of the city of Naples, which overlooks the southern side of the Bay of Naples. The villa was commissioned to take on a new look and style in its refurbishment and was transformed into a place a tranquillity, with a bay-side view to complement it.
