Considering the flashy nature and the amazing designs that modern houses are sporting of late it really is not easy to fabricate a home that will astonish you and dazzle with sheer splendor. Yet this wonderful modern house in Caesarea Israel is really something ‘special’ and the moment you lay your eyes on it you cannot but help fall in love with its well-defined plan sleek look amazing use of glass and daft integration of metal into the structure.
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 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 800 square meter residence is a chic amalgamation of the characteristic form of old manor houses of the Alentejo along with sleek and well defined lines of contemporary structures. The resultant creation is a gorgeous two level villa that largely employs soothing neutral shades is predominantly clad in white and employs graceful use of glass and stone.
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.
