A big reason the two sided fireplace is very common with homeowners today is that they add not only great value, but luxurious charm to the home. With the great looks of this type of fireplace you can easily turn a regular looking interior into one that is luxurious and fashionable. Along with this great look and charm, there are also some problems that two sided fireplaces bring to the home.

O Mercado de Abrantes, projeto do conhecido atelier ARX Portugal, promete… Depois deste pormenor, que partilhei há algumas semanas, eis que ontem, no facebook deste atelier, surgem mais algumas imagens do projeto em obra. Acima, duas imagens da caixa de escadas, um dos meus pormenores favoritos. Mais aqui. Take a look!
The new building is designed for a sole activity: creation, an introspective and solitary experience, just as the painter told us. This led us to handle the volume compactly, with a uniform exterior design –layers of insulation and clear stucco in an expressive continuance of walls and cover– to establish a feeling of familiarity with the natural surroundings in an unobtrusive manner. The interior is a fluid and multiple concrete cavity – a direct result of the monolithic structural construction concept and the search for harsh and naked spaces that serve the artistic work that takes place inside.
The plot of land is sloping, with an abundance of trees on the northern face of Tibidabo, and is adjacent to the painter’s house. The small building has the largest –12 m x 13.5 m–, and emptiest painting studio possible, a result of the meeting between the prismatic volume and the land, a workshop for sculpture and a store for the painter’s own work.
