The garden with pool:
The garden is a secret hidden place in the middle of Lagos with an exotic garden and pool with fountains. Various lounge seats and dinner table.
The design and creation:
Studio ArTe, the architectural team, responsible for the creation of Los Camachinos had the idea of keeping the exterior architecture intact due to legal building regulations. In doing so they created a spectacular townhouse allowing natural light to flow in gently through a light corridor placed above the wall, connecting the kitchen to the living and dining room. On the first floor, where the 2 bedrooms are located, they again, took advantage of natural exterior light using large sky-bow velux windows.
The ground floor walls were built and finished with three types of Tadelakt. A resin finish, similar to epoxy, was applied to the kitchen wall, a skin-like wax finish was applied to one of the living room walls, and a special mineral component made of ceramic and seashells provides a discrete shiny effect to another living room wall.
The ground floor was paved with polished Portuguese ‘calçada’ in a traditional pattern. The result was not only highly sophisticated, but also an homage to Lusitanian culture, revamped in a modern minimalist setting.
The staircase was crafted of polished ‘moleanos’ while the first floor was laid with beautiful polished wood, giving the feel of comfort and coziness. Between the two bedrooms they succeeded in creating a spacious bathroom with a private shower area and two washbasins.Casa dos Camachinhos is a project of which we are proud: an effective mélange of comfort and simplicity, decorated with a minimalist perspective and subtle notes of baroque and Arab mysticism.
