Casa Riviera, a beach house located on the shores of a picturesque coastline, underwent an extensive renovation carried out by Basiches Architects. The project aimed to bring the family together more often and create a comfortable and tolerant environment for a harmonious family life. In an exclusive interview with the dwellers, they shared their motivations, requirements, and the transformative impact the reform had on their daily lives.

The owners' main motivation was to establish a beach house that would serve as a gathering place for the entire family. "We acquired the house with the intention of bringing the family together more often in our beach house," they explained. The primary objective of the project was to foster a sense of togetherness and create an environment conducive to comfortable family living.

The reform brought about a remarkable transformation in the residents' life experience. Working closely with José Ricardo, the architect in charge of the project, they meticulously planned every detail to ensure both architectural excellence and harmonious living. An increase in the number of suites was necessary to accommodate the growing family, while the focal point of the renovation was the living area, which seamlessly integrated the living room with the veranda. Furthermore, the addition of swimming pools further enhanced the appeal and functionality of the space. The overarching goal was to create a unique and integrated environment that would promote a sense of unity.

Living in the renovated Casa Riviera evokes a distinct atmosphere and feeling for the residents. "The feeling is of realizing an idea that started on paper and became reality," they shared. The house is a testament to their vision and the well-thought-out project that brought it to life. It awakens a deep sense of belonging and togetherness, a feeling that would have been hard to achieve without the idealization and careful planning of the renovation. Casa Riviera serves as a space where the family can truly be themselves and cherish moments of connection and shared experiences.

Basiches Architects, through their meticulous design and thoughtful execution, transformed Casa Riviera into a haven that fosters family unity and a comfortable lifestyle. The project demonstrates the power of architecture to shape the dynamics of a household and create an environment that brings people together. With Casa Riviera, the owners have achieved their goals of a revitalized beach house that not only meets their requirements but also enriches their lives as residents, allowing them to forge lasting memories with their loved ones.
