Creating a contemporary home that is relaxing energizing and in harmony with the landscape around it Studio Arthur Casas transformed the aura and the visual appeal of a 6.000-square-meter lot in Brazil. Nestled on a small portion of the large chunk of land the gorgeous private home was built keeping in mind future demands of the homeowners and the need for new houses for both the children and the grandkids.
Is all about going green in more ways than one. It all starts with a floor plan that places emphasis on an uncluttered open look allowing light to freely flow from one level to another. Add to this smart design that reduces reliance on heating and cooling systems and you have an absolute gem of a home!
Oversized pendant lights and ample natural ventilation elevate the ambiance of the home even as furniture ushers in some much needed color. With bedrooms and bathrooms also embracing this minimal-ergonomic look this is a home where simplicity and practicality trump aesthetics.
It is the lower level that contains the guest rooms with the second floor housing the main living area kitchen and dining area and the top level holding the master suite along with other bedrooms and bathrooms. With mesmerizing views of the surrounding landscape a minimal design style that puts practicality ahead of flowery aesthetics and a hint of Scandinavian simplicity this beautiful inventive and yet classic chalet stands out from those that surround it in Anzère.
Wooden cabinets and wonderful fireplaces add contrast and warmth to an interior that otherwise is homogenous. A nifty staircase connects the lower living area with the bedrooms on the top level even as the spa zone next to the deck completes a modern home that is understated and exquisite.
