The latest project from São Paolo based design studio Arthur Casas, Casa (house) AL is another perfect example of the team’s intimate connection to horizontal scale. Built in Joa, in the hills outside of Rio de Janeiro in Brazil, the three-floor home is fully integrated with its natural surroundings due to the choice of materials. But best of all, it has a very unexpected ocean view that is second to none.

With hotel conversions in historic sites often ending up being rather soulless, the balance struck between modern-day tastes and needs, as well as history, is just right at the Fontevraud Abbey’s new hotel. Designed by architect duo Jouin Manku, aka Patrick Jouin & Sanjit Manku, the soothing and sleek design leaves room for the historically charged interiors of one of the vastest monastic sites from the Middle Ages, to continue be the focal point of every space.
