This was built by Aamodt / Plumb Architects in just a matter of 12 months from the initial idea being put in place and while that might not sound all that ‘fast’ it is remarkably quick for a home of its size.
The flat roof lines stand in contrast to this form and create both geometric and visual contrast with ease. While the exterior seems rigid and minimal the interior offers an inviting relaxing and open living area that opens up into the beautiful backyard.
The idea here was to not just fashion a home that connects with the panoramic scenery but also to incorporate design flexibility and adaptability that lets it grow along with the needs of the homeowners.
Translucent glass panels are pretty underrated when it comes to home design and barring a few kitchen cabinets and shower doors you do not really see them being used extensively. But the extravagant and vivacious by Pascali Semerdjian Architects in Brazil puts glass panels to perfect use as translucent partitions simple glass dividers and wooden slats combine to offer the best of privacy and unabated connectivity with the landscape.
With a simple white backdrop the living room offers a perfect canvas to bring in essentially different materials and textures like the snazzy Moroccan rug (which is still pretty modern) a stone coffee table and the minimal modern fireplace.
A simple pathway and an irregular ramp shape the lovely entrance to the house where a large 4-meter-tall door in local Lapacho wood greets you gleefully. The interior is also draped in locally sourced Lapacho wood adding warmth and elegance to a contemporary setting that is otherwise dominated by white and other neutral hues.
The gorgeous home now features a blend of the 50s Ranch style rustic touches that give it inviting warmth and modern ergonomics that make the life of its young homeowners an absolute delight.
