The area separated by the moving glass walls also contains a library and space for children’s activity room with a huge whiteboard on one of the walls. By using the glass doors the living space can be separated from this area as well and hence the noise can be kept out whenever needed while still keeping an eye on the kids!
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.
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 décor inside is kept simple and uncomplicated and with a refreshing pool plenty of outdoor space and wooden patios that promise some amazing evenings this is well and truly a beach house that delivers everything it promises.
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.
