Projeto Cobertura is a project designed by WVS Arquitetura. With two married children and 5 grandchildren.

Studio Carver has refurbished a terraced Edwardian property in Belsize Park, north London. Its Anglo-American owners wanted a contemporary structure reminiscent of American-style timber conservatory extensions to serve as the family’s primary dining area. The modest extension replaces an existing conservatory creating more usable space internally with better visual and physical connections to the garden. Photography by Richard Chivers.
Curiosity. This is the word that describes the entrance to the apartment designed by Erez Hyatt in Ramat Gan, during which an amazing space is discovered with an urban landscape and open sky decor. In this project, the designer got a free hand when the client stated that she wanted to arrive at the end of the renovation with suitcases only.
