Nowadays it's fashionable to rent small villas or private residences on the beach. One of them we will talk about in this article.
This is the home of Casa Joía. Located on the picturesque seaside village of Carvoeiro in the Algarve, Portugal.
It was the roof's dramatic view and the proximity to the Atlantic Ocean that gave the owners the idea of turning the former fisherman's hut into a sophisticated private residence. For help in generating ideas for the home, they turned to Studio Arte Architecture& Design and Lusco Fusco Concepts.
The project was developed quickly, and in 2012 the renovated room was already welcoming its first guests. Both the façade and the interior have been changed. Builders completely demolished the roof, but kept the traditional walls of the fisherman's village.
The old front door has been replaced with a new door made of white perforated metal. From the street, it looks like a small hidden wicket door. White is also the dominant color in the interior of the former fishing hut. Add touches of red and black to the kitchen design.
