Drawn to this historic Italianate residence, a landmark in Capitol Hill’s Harvard-Belmont Historical District, the new owners knew they needed a design firm that would respect the home’s historic exterior yet bring a modern sensibility to the interiors, which had long ago been compromised through a series of ill-conceived remodels.

The Canine & Feline Hotel designed by Raulino Architect is located in Parada, Vila do Conde and the main program consists of temporary dog and cat accommodation, a hotel where the animals stay for a few days, during holidays or professional travel of their owners. The remaining program is a complement to the space’s activity, with a veterinary office, a grooming room, outdoor training areas and a swimming pool for pets. Photography by João Morgado
Projeto Cobertura is a project designed by WVS Arquitetura. With two married children and 5 grandchildren. The residents of this property wanted a nice apartment that had the look of “home”, without much freshness because they very much wanted the grandchildren to “feel free” to enjoy every corner of the apartment.
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.
This hillside home designed by Coates Design Seattle Architects is 2600 square feet with two bedrooms. Similar to its sibling shoreline home, Seaview Escape, it is done in the Pacific Northwest-style, with wood floors and an expansive two-story glazing allowing a view of the mountains from the upper balcony.

Atop a Shop is a project designed by tsai Design. Have you ever looked up at an inner city Victorian shopfront and wondered what’s going on upstairs? Truth is, many of these residences are vacant or underutilised. Smith St Caretakers offered us the perfect opportunity to bring this type of building stock into the modern era: thriving business downstairs, sanctuary above. Photography by Tess Kelly.
