The lower floor contains the kids’ bedrooms the guestrooms and other facilities like the gymnasium and the home theater which are beautifully integrated with the rest of the house. The central attraction of the residence though is the serene and minimalist pond of Buddhist inspiration that should put any worries to rest.
The wine cellar is intoxicatingly grand the gaming room conveniently placed to have loads of fun and the living room warmth and comfort galore. Offering both fun and privacy at the same time the opulence is never lost throughout.
Warm inviting and largely neutral tones grace the interiors and plush décor along with the ample wood and glass make this a treat for those who wish to move away from the excessive use of concrete. The large floor to ceiling windows ensure there is constant natural lighting along with the ever-changing canopy forming a lovely and brilliant canvas.
Designed ever so elegantly by architect Danilo Matoso Macedo the structure uses both glass and stone in a wonderfully balanced fashion to create a warm and inviting home in the heart of one of Brazil’s most vibrant neighborhoods.
The use of glass for this purpose has several benefits as it is easy to use retractable glass walls when compared to other materials thanks to their lighter weight but more importantly it only keeps the noise out while still giving visual access.
