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.
Designed by Studio Arthur Casas located in São Paulo the home is actually divided into two separate structures that are connected by an open pond area. While the main structure consists of the living quarters the kitchen and the master bedroom the second building next to it houses children’s bedrooms and rooms for guests. The idea is to give everyone as much space as possible and bring in a certain sense of privacy that does not encroach upon the space of others in the home.
The stand out structure of the entire design is the large metal wall made out of painted aluminum that not only adds to the beauty and the balance of the home but also provides privacy by visually shielding the interiors from the wanderers’ eyes outside. The tasteful glazed flooring and the pool offer perfectly reflective surfaces and give the home a more spacious feel.
Designed ever so dramatically by Tierra Design the structure is placed on a podium of granite cobbled walls and uses a z-shaped pattern to ensure that every part of the four-level home gets an unabated view of the sea. The most striking and visually appealing feature of the Villa Mayavee is the way in which architects have used water to not just offer a beautiful variation but also as a reflective surface that accentuates the beauty of the estate.
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.
