For our Summer 2016 photoshoot, we returned to the stunning Casa da Escrita in Coimbra, Portugal. Formerly known as Casa do Arco, the residence of the late poet João Cochofel, Casa da Escrita was refurbished in 2010 by architect João Mendes Ribeiro, and repurposed as a space for writing events and a temporary residence for practicing writers. The refurbishment was sensitive to the historic features of the building, preserving elements such as decorative ceilings and corniced walls, while simplifying the living spaces, adding flexibility, and bringing a warm, functional modernity.
