Transition between each of these spaces and the outdoor deck is seamless and fluid allowing the homeowners to enjoy an uninhibited and cheerful living environment. Cantilevered verandahs offer ample shade and keep out direct sunlight while vivacious dining table chairs and furniture bring color to the interior.
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.
The family a coupled with three teenage daughters wanted Studio Guilherme Torres to create a contemporary residence where each family member had plenty of privacy even as the large pool area and wooden deck encouraged interaction and played host to fun-filled and relaxing weekends.
Despite its private and modest street façade the house opens up towards the view below as its rear front features large glass windows and sliding doors that bring the outdoors inside. With an interior in wood and concrete this smart Swiss home combines a hint of rustic charm with refined modernity in a seamless fashion.
This effect is even more profound in case of natural light and the in is a perfect example of how creative design can usher in sunlight into the most improbable places! Designed by Ben Callery Architects the rear extension of this narrow brick house in Melbourne relies on a roof that curves towards the sky to fill its living area with sunlight.
Once you take in the view from an altitude of your attention immediately turns to the warped out tubular roof and the dynamic curved ceiling that it creates. This wavy wooden ceiling comes alive after sunset as recessed lighting and those faint lights of Oakland in the backdrop shape a stunning ambiance!
Replacing the old staircase with the new design not only enhanced the visual appeal of the home but also saved space by 20 percent giving the architects more room to work with. Replacing the old larger kitchen with an ergonomic cutting-edge kitchen that is much smaller also freed up space for the living room.
