” Inspired by the homes of local fishermen, they designed a set of 3 cabanas: one for the living room, one for the kitchen, a third for bedrooms, connected by wooden walkways put on the sand. Suduca & Mérillou used traditional local materials: straw, wood, bamboo, lime. ‘We wanted to create a pure atmosphere, light and relaxing. Special care is given to the terraces runs much of the holiday life. Inside, the walls are whitewashed, beams in a monastic whiteness. Materials raw and poor, straw, reed, string, raffia relay around vintage pieces of Calder, Gio Ponti, Royere and Lurcat.”
This beach house in Portugal by Daniel Suduca and Thierry Mérillou of Galerie Saint Jacques may seem like a reworking of a simple fisherman’s cottage but don’t be fooled. This rough luxe getaway is overflowing with style and all those fabulous vintage treasures by Calder, Gio Ponti, Royere and Lurcat.
