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.
Carefully planned cutouts shape the new basement-level music room and the lap pool next to the home even as the private spaces feel relaxed and inviting. Still inherently traditional and yet unmistakably modern on the inside this is a bushland home that bridges two different design philosophies.
Despite these limitations turns out to be a stunning residence that blurs the line between the interior and the landscape around it even while creating a sense of privacy and modernity. At the core of this design are two simple rectangular volumes with the lower unit holding the living areas and the top block containing the private spaces.
Draped with wood on the outside the home tries to combine the cozy atmosphere of a classic mountain home with sleek contemporary aesthetics to offer the best of both worlds. The interior of the house is simple unassuming and devoid of bold color to ensure that the focus remains firmly on the landscape outside.
Brick exposed concrete rebar and metal oxide give the interior a cozy inviting appeal despite creating a color palette that transports you to an ancient Iranian-style setting. Yet modern industrial elements and a loft-style floor plan ensure that there is a fine balance between the past and the present.
Nestled in a hip and energetic neighborhood of Brazil the is largely defined by a beautiful spiral staircase in black and a dramatic accent wall that is covered with plates in blue and white. Designed by AMBIDESTRO the modern home showcases a blend of the dashing and the understated as one is drawn in by both its elegance and audacity!
