While the old stone house is not a primary residence, it provides a complete living experience. The objective is to integrate the home’s new extension into the natural landscape and the region’s heritage but with a modern and minimalist spin.

Fascinating Lamps by Calabarte Calabarte is the pseudonym of a Polish artist named Przemek Krawczynski, whose art takes on a peculiar but incredibly beautiful form: cool lamps. The name itself is a portmanteau of two words – art (obviously), and calabash, the fruit that carries his imagination.
