Apart from the custom-crafted furniture and design solutions it is the smart usage of sliding glass walls that ensures each individual room inside the home feels both unique and connected with the rest of the house. Exquisite exclusive and filled with green goodness at every turn this is a refreshing Brazilian home that puts a smile on your face.
Since we are in Brazil there is absolutely no escaping the strong influence of ‘life on the beach’ with curated artwork and fascinating photo collages making their presence felt in the bedroom and dining area.
Space is a luxury in and it is absolutely no surprise that every home that we come across in this bustling city tries its absolute best to make the most of the ‘vertical space’ on offer. Private residences that stretch across 4 or 5 different levels seem to be the norm here and while the fabulous follows the same blueprint that is where the common traits end.
While the classic brick exterior of this once-thriving warehouse had to be left almost completely untouched the interiors were completely overhauled to accommodate two individual residences with separate entrances – a design that perfectly meets the needs of an extended modern family.
The secluded pool deck multiple terraces and additional balconies enhance the quality of life here as it is the greenery and fresh ocean breeze outside that truly make this home special.
Décor is kept simple and minimal with the likes of classic Eames Lounger adding timeless appeal to an otherwise distinctly modern interior. As is the norm these days large sliding glass doors make their presence felt in every room even as the homeowners are tempted to spend more time outdoors than inside. Brilliant lighting and minimal accessories complete a Texas home that reinterprets that classic ‘courtyard house style’ by adding contemporary sheen.
Essentially the delightful residence brings together a series of courtyards and open spaces bound by glass and stone walls to create a relaxing imaginative and exclusive interior. Apart from the obvious stone and glass presence it is the sturdy steel beams that bring another interesting dimension to this Aussie home even as the two butterfly roofs open up to bring in as much sunlight as possible.
