A firebox redefines the hub of a home: a renovation project in Sirmione

Sirmione is defined by many as the “Pearl of lake Garda”: it’s a thirteenth-century village that exudes history and beauty from every nook and cranny.  The famous Scaligero castle, the Catullo spas and the small beaches – that overlook the lake from the dock – turn the village into a much-loved resort for tourists from Italy and beyond. Today’s project is precisely in this small town and results from meticulous renovation work performed by the architects of Studio Ava based in Desenzano del Garda (Brescia), partnered with StageIt, a company from the same area specialised in interior design. Join, separate, create…

Provencal-style for a tailor-made outdoor kitchen

Patches of Mediterranean scrubs, a long beach that starts from the mouth of the Tagliamento river, cluster pines that alternate with houses in one of Friuli-Venezia Giulia’s most famous holiday resort areas.  Today’s project takes us to Lignano Riviera, the calmer, more family-oriented “sister” of the livelier Lignano Sabbiadoro in the province of Udine. A haven surrounded by greenery a stone’s throw from the beech where you can create your own, small space paradise amongst the pines. Probably the intimacy created by the trees – almost a natural wall that separates you from the rest of the world – was…

Come progettare una cucina outdoor?

Stai pensando di acquistare un barbecue o di creare un vero spazio cucina nell’area esterna della tua casa? Sei nel posto giusto! Convivialità, buon cibo e aria aperta: la grigliata è uno dei nostri momenti preferiti dell’anno. Il piacere della buona cucina diventa un’attività di gruppo, tra risate, nuove ricette e – spesso – qualche consiglio non voluto da chi si è svegliato al mattino con il cappello da chef! Tutto questo però può venir meno se il barbecue non è funzionale o la cucina outdoor poco organizzata: troppe corse avanti e indietro da casa e cibi mal cotti possono…

Revolutionising spaces in Brescia

“Andrea, either we give this house a total make over or I’m going to sell it!” This is music to the ears of an interior decorator: free rein and a world of possibilities! The project that architect Andrea Benedetti of Panificio Architecture Workshop curated in Brescia started from an apartment with lots of potential that had many issues to solve at the outset. The living room was very small, there was nowhere to dine, the kitchen was large but not very functional, the bathroom was fitted with a bathtub which wasn’t in line with the client’s needs. From need to…

Travertine and minimal lines for an apartment in Brussels

Today we are in Belgium and more precisely in Brussels, its cosmopolitan capital. Accompanying us during our visit is architect Luisa Grasso, who founded her architectural and interior design studio Arsbe Atelier D’architecture right here. Different tastes, a desire to rejuvenate The generation gap takes many different forms: choice of clothes, musical preferences, use of a language. And obviously aesthetic taste. It’s through the transition between parents and children that decisions get made to change and restructure, sometimes radically. This is what happened with this 186 m² duplex in Brussels, decorated in a rather conventional way despite the modern space:…

How to (quickly) prepare a yoghurt salsa

Yoghurt salsa is a passepartout, a bit like hollandaise or mayonnaise. It is difficult to find a common, generic recipe because its preparation varies from country to country, as well as how it’s used. Any examples? How about as a dressing for a German potato salad, as a kebab sauce (Middle Eastern) or in the most well-known of them all, Greek tzatziki sauce. How do you choose the right yoghurt salsa? As you may have guessed, there are many variations and are based on the aromatic herbs used in the preparation phase. It’s the herbs that “decide” the perfect combination,…
