Bambu Atmosfera

The Biophilia concept points to our inborn connection with nature and its impacts on our physical and mental health. Based in this idea, Biophilic Design incorporates natural elements into constructions in order to reinstate contact between man and nature as a tool for well-being. Perkins+Will used these principals to conceptualize Bambu Atmosfera, a residential edifice in Praia Grande Ubatuba, privileged beach area in São Paulo’s coastline. The project’s main feature is the predominant presence of the bamboo, which integrates the building to its surroundings, representing the possibility of a harmonic, respectful coexistence between nature and constructions.Clad in vertical bamboo poles, the facade can be redesigned by the movement of...

Project • By CERAMICHE CAESARPrivate Houses


With its sunny beaches, breathtaking turquoise and crystal clear sea and picturesque villages huddled on the mountains overlooking the Riviera, the Côte d’Azur is the ideal place for lovers of the sea, the sun, beach life and having fun. As setting of unexpected routes and exceptional art galleries of the masters of Impressionism, who drew inspiration from the bright colours of nature, the landscapes appear as if painted and the rocks as if sculpted by the wind. Beauty and charm blend in perfect harmony in a location that the entire world envies. In this evocative context, Ceramiche Caesar contributed to the development of a luxury private residence, completed in 2016, by providing its nature-inspired ceramic collections...

Beach house on the heights

Located in the Mediterranean coast, this property is the result of the family need to expand the holiday residence.We are placed in a coastal town, once a fishermen’s village that, with the arrival of tourists, it has become a tourist destination where to spend one’s holidays.The project takes up the flat cover of the house below. This can be found in a sequence of row blocks which once were identical, making up a simple urbanization of “beach houses”. Today, the same that once happened to the fishermen’s dwellings has happened here. There is no sign of what they used to be. The area’s planning does not imply other architectural resources beyond the urban restraints regarding height, occupancy and boundaries. That is why the neighbors have... More

The Crows Nest

AR Design Studio was approached by the clients who were looking to extend their holiday home on a cliff top on the South Coast. During the planning process, and following the unprecedented rainfall during the winter of 2014, there was subsidence close to the house and the decision was made to replace it entirely.   AR Design Studio was then tasked with designing a completely new home; the idea of movement and fracturing formed the backbone of the concept. Working closely with engineers Eckersley O’Callaghan, an imaginative structural solution was proposed to prevent future failure. A concrete slab was built into the ground, a series of strategically placed dwarf walls were then built on top of it. A floating structural frame wa... More

Thorne Bay House

A three bedroom house designed for a small and near-impossible site! Five well established pohutukawa inhabit the site, with intertwined limbs spread across the seaward half of the available building zone. A tight access lane drops from Minnehaha Ave at a very steep 1:3 slope. Much of the site is volcanic rock. The desire not to damage the trees or their extensive root systems, combined with the steep slope and limited turning circle for cars, the rock outcrops, and the restrictions of height-to-boundary controls necessitated a process of complex analysis to formulate the actual possibilities for building. The result is an innovative building which and is squeezed under, around and between the limbs of the trees, and still manages to ta... More
