Casa Joía is a jewel on the coastline of Carvoeiro- Algarve-Portugal. Designed by architects from Studio Arte, Situated on the front line of the south coast of Portugal. Outside it was completely renovated and kept in traditional layout. Inside nothing reminds you of the old fishermans house it used to be. The Dutch owners sensed the great opportunity of this venue and gave Studio Arte (Arnold Aarssen and Meta Roeymans) and Lusco Fusco Concepts (Janneke Haane) the chance to create a fabulous property. The limited space of the old Portugese house was a challenge for both the architects and interior designer. From the outside the house was stripped and left in traditional form. The frontdoor is a typical example of the designers style; the old door design performed in a modern way with white perforated metaal. The main colour in the house used is pure white. The surroundings with the blue ocean, blue sky, yellow coastline and colourfull townhouses invite the guest to go outside to one of the beautiful terraces. Bading in light and space you will feel more than comfortable in this modern retreat. The spacious living room has beautifully been decorated with a minimal of comfortable furniture. All is kept clean and basic. The focus lies on what happens outdoors, inside is like a cocoon of white& grey tones and atmospheric lighting. Large patio doors open up towards the first terrace. Here teh guests can enjoyr wining- dining and be amazedby the view on the beach and ocean. The house is equiped with e.g. satellite tv, airconditioning, and Wireless internet. In the contemporary kitchen is the finishing is microcement and black valchromat. A hidden staircase leads towards a second bedroom with a spacious bathroom with japonese bath en-suite downstairs.
