There is an undeniable ‘Bohemian spirit’ that the fabulous in Vila Madalena São Paulo exudes. This of course comes barely as a surprise to those who know this unique neighborhood filled with artists designers and creative souls who spend endless hours conjuring up something refreshingly new.
The rooftop heated pool is divided into two distinct parts with a swimming lane and a resting zone. A marble kitchen island brings sophistication and style to the interior with large drapes allowing you to switch easily between amazing views and complete privacy.
A unique feature of the house is its distinctive pitched roof and polygon façade that were largely determined by the slope of the site local building norms and a desire of the homeowners to combine privacy with unabated views.
This split between the two zones is simple practical and also creates a spacious courtyard that holds a large wooden deck along with the pool. Ample greenery around the house acts as a natural privacy barrier with a resort-inspired ambiance holding sway.
The courtyard sits at the heart of the house and a ventilation duct on the second floor brings in light and natural breeze. While hitting the house is gently drawn into the courtyard it is the slightly curved outward roof of the south side that directs the air outside. This also helps in cooling the house naturally on less boisterous days!
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.
Décor is kept intentionally understated with the focus firmly on the inviting yard just outside. Calming charming and contemporary – this Mexican residence offers a great template for anyone planning to create a home that can host a lovely staycation!
