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 plan of the structure has a very open and airy feel to it with plenty of glass being used in an exaggerated fashion to ensure that there is a natural and flowing connectivity between every room and with the exterior as well. This also gives the JPGN Residence ample natural ventilation along with a feeling of freshness.
Most modern homes seem to be following a similar style of design that combines spacious interiors stylish décor smart design and clean and well defined structure. The JPGN Residence that has taken shape in Brasilia Brazil is another beautiful example of this popular current trend.
The structure of the house itself is one of a elevated and cantilevered cube that sits safely on a few pillars. The lovely and flowing use of wood along with elegantly extravagant glass surfaces and floor to ceiling glass windows has meant that there is both a natural and yet fashionable appeal that comes with the home.
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.
