It is locally sourced granite glass and wood that shapes the open and inviting holiday home. The living area kitchen and dining flow into one end of the private courtyard with the natural structure of the house and large overhangs creating sheltered verandahs.
Designed by MODO Designs the structure of this pavilion-style retreat is divided into two sections with the front façade holding the public spaces and the more sheltered rear edifice containing the bedrooms and the bathrooms.
The family of seven finds plenty of space in and around the new house even as the pool area becomes the new relaxing ‘social zone’. A lovely garden filled with greenery and light-filled interior spread across two expansive levels complete this modern-classic residence.
Having lived in a home with spatial limitations for over a decade and a half the owners of this mountainside residence in wanted a smarter more efficient and refreshing modern interior fit for their urban lifestyle.
Set in an idyllic landscape filled with majestic mountains and a lush green landscape that comes alive each summer in Merishausen brings modernity to a relaxing rural setting. Designed by Dost this contemporary residence in gray sits on a sloped lot (not a surprise) and overlooks the village below.
A relaxing front yard with plenty of space and greenery was crafted to not only create a smart outdoor hangout but also to ensure that there was ample privacy. Set deep into the lot the main house allows family members to escape the constant rush of life in Vila Madalena even while spending sunny evening under the shade.
Despite its contemporary aesthetics the colorful zest inside the house definitely gives it an eclectic-modern vibe even as ARKITITO Arquitetura did their absolute best to cut back on construction costs and wastage of space. Even with a concrete and steel structure and an interior covered in cement blocks there is plenty of vivacious brilliance everywhere you look!
