Istria is truly a fascinating land, a landscape that is idyllic in many ways, as the official hymn of the Istrian Region “Krasna zemljo” or “Beautiful Land” states. The Puerto Luna Azul atelier & residence, with a unique view of the Canal d’Arsia and the Kvarner Islands, is perfectly integrated into the natural landscape, both in terms of volumetric choices and used materials.
The supporting structure consists of a steel skeleton with HEA beams and pillars. Cor-ten steel has been used in the ventilated wall that closes towards the small adjacent town, in the no-invasive tool shed and as decoration material for various details. In the interiors, plywood and chestnut wood prevail. On the sea side, large glass and steel openings allow to fully enjoy the beautiful landscape, and let the surrounding garden “enter” the living area.
Realized using the system FerroFinestra Mogs W50 TB with thermal barrier, these large windows and doors guarantee energy saving and the necessary security against break-ins.
