It is the ground floor that contains the main bedrooms which stretch into the beautifully curated gardens and walkways outside. The natural pool and the massive man-made lagoon help cool the building further cutting back on its energy needs even while providing the perfect backdrop for evenings that range from the intimate and romantic to those with unending parties.
It is the rear extension though that steals the show with its bright and beautiful demeanor that acts as a bridge between classic and contemporary styles. Frameless glazing oak and brick shape the new addition that now contains the kitchen and dining space.
Unassuming Edison bulb lighting and smart shelving complete a Brazilian home where openness of design is coupled with controlled privacy and ample natural light to offer best of both worlds!
A relaxing front yard with plenty of space and greenery was crafted to not only create a smart outdoor hangout but also to ensure that there was ample privacy. Set deep into the lot the main house allows family members to escape the constant rush of life in Vila Madalena even while spending sunny evening under the shade.
Even though much of the focus remains on the wooden courtyard pool area and the shaded walkways life on the inside is equally enjoyable with modern minimal style holding sway. Exposed concrete surfaces brick walls painted in white and stone countertops in black create textural contrast without moving away from the neutral color scheme. Ergonomics precede flowery aesthetics here with low-maintenance finishes creating clever public and private spaces.
Adding to the intrigue and the visual splendor of this modern home is the Brise soleil that keeps away hot tropical sun and creates beautiful walkways that are still lit ever so beautifully by natural light.
It’s amazing how important a fence can be. The classic picket fence gives the house a domestic feeling because there is something so familiar about its design. It has an inviting appeal! This beautiful vintage home painted on a lovely shade of pastel blue is picture perfect! It’s absolutely dreamy calling you in its beauty enhanced by the pretty little white fence!
