In the heart of Spello, Italy, a historical town known for its ancient Roman walls, the Blackbeard Garden House blooms. This 2021 architectural project, masterfully designed by Massimo Berzetta, has breathed new life into a historic mansion, repurposing it into a modern guest house. The transformation incorporates a blend of structural rehabilitation, energy upgrades, and functional plant system, all beautifully crowned with a tasteful interior design and art-furnishings.
Infusing modernity with traditional charm, Blackbeard Garden House offers an exquisite hospitality experience in a culturally rich town.
La Escocesa is a modern guest house located on 25 de Mayo, Argentina and designed by Dub I Diseño & Sustentabilidad in 2022.
Situated in the flat plains of the ‘Pampas’ in the Province of Buenos Aires, Argentina, this house was built to be flexible and to support a family home. The house consists of four modules: a large kitchen/dining room; a two-bedroom module; a split-bathroom module; and a large multi-purpose space in the attic. Low or no maintenance materials were chosen for the building envelope, as well as environmental design strategies to require very little air conditioning throughout the year. The central patio serves as the nucleus of union of all the parts of the house, providing an outdoor distribution hall and a space for meeting and contemplation of the surrounding landscape.
