Interior ARCHITECTURE: Cave man Style
The cavern was the first place where men settled Because they felt safe there. Today we master all types of materials but our insatiable need for light drives us to flee as much as possible the underground spaces considered inhospitable. This is the challenge that the agencies Raul Sanchez Architects and Manca Studio: Create a real comfortable interior architecture in a basement and a cave... Visit of two improbable but true projects.
– Apartment TIBBAUT, by RAS Arquitectura –
At first sight, it is difficult to imagine the first aspect of this basement. Who could believe that this dark, humid and dilapidated non-space had the potential to become an underground paradise? This is indeed the challenge raised by RAS Arquitectura – agency founded by Raúl Sánchez – And who is committed to not limiting themselves to standard projects, preferring to open up to any type of opportunity in order to practice Architecture and interior architecture in its most enjoyable environment: the difficulty.
This atypical place whose strong identity is due to its high ceiling, two octagonal pillars with a monumental look and its arches, had to be severely treated so that the air was breathable and the humidity banned. In order to create optimum ventilation, the concept ofInterior Design is based on the Creation of a partition of wood separating the central living space of the other rooms, open in the upper part. This skilful blend of raw wood is an immaculate white, returning light to create a serene atmosphere and a space that appears much larger than the original 55 m².
A place where one would leave almost on a passing holiday to Barcelona…

– HOTEL LA DIMORA DI METELLO, Manca Studio –
It is in the south of Italy this time that a contemporary hotel has been born within the village of Matera, whose particular feature will not have escaped you: carved from the rock A hundred years ago, every house looks like a modern-day cavern. In the maze of these ancient ruins rehabilitated in a comfortable and fully equipped hotel, the balance between natural and artificial light and the massive appearance of this extraordinary interior communicates to any visitor a feeling of energy and harmony Unsuspected.
The rock material was treated with respect by Manca Studio, who was able to take advantage of this grandiose and omnipresent presence. Custom furniture in light oak, the subtlety of the glass and a touch of metal dominate in this vast mineral to create the perfect interior architecture for any man who loves caves nowadays. But make no mistake, This is a luxurious cavern, with only four unique rooms, so much had to be adapted to the asperities of the rock. The private and communal parts of this hotel are impeccably arranged, and As pleasant as any interior, whether stone, glass or plaster.
