RUA Dona Elisa
Located in the residential Jardins neighborhood of Sâo Paulo, vila Dona Elisa involved both interior design and landscaping. Inspired by the work of great Brazilians master architect Oscar Niemeyer and most recently Marcio Kogan, the villa was reshaped from an old soulless two stories maisonette into a modern open space three floors mansion.
On the interior side, in particular, brute slates of wood were chosen for the flooring to add a lofty dimension to the luminous space and create a pleasant contrast with the living room’s vertical fern garden overlooking a majestic glass-top table with tropical hardwood trunk bases.
The oldest house in the Golf Club of Garlenda on the Ligurian seaside of Italy, Villa Moro undertook a complete renovation of the property and turned into a family house.
A restrained, subtle palette, a pared-back approach to furnishings and decoration, and organic, untreated textures such as stone slabs, marble, steel beams and rough linens work together to give the house warmth, energy and serenity.
This charming South Kensington mews house has gone through an extensive renovation to accommodate the needs of Maresca Interiors Studio.
The ground floor is open plan but has distinct interiors within working both as an office and a showroom. Playing with a colour palette of blues, reds and yellows, the space presents elegant yet vibrant rooms to enhance the beauty of the Brazilian mid-century furniture pieces placed throughout the two stories mews.
VILA DO PIRI
The villa is built in the middle of a jungly plot of land, nearby the charming Quadrado (main square) of what is acclaimed to be one of Bahia’s most charming and characteristic spots, the village of Trancoso (Brasil).
The design and decor of the villa is inspired by the site, the clients’ desire to live ‘in a bright glass house with all the cosiness of a typical Bahian fazenda (farmhouse), the craftsmanship of the region’s carpentry and the work of the local indigenous tribe Pataxó.
