Unassuming décor open wooden shelves smart partitions and sliding glass doors add to the sense of light-filled cheerfulness of the interior even as a rooftop lounge promises stunning views of the city and beyond. In a world where homeowners are increasingly becoming more averse to the use of bold color this chic Brazilian home is truly a revelation of sorts!
Warm oak flooring of the new kitchen sits next to the brick floor outside and delineates it visually with the color palette being kept strictly neutral. Despite the lack of bold color and bright metallic there is plenty that draws your attention at this revamped English home.
And if you have a yard deck and pool like the in Mexico then the holiday at home seems magical as well! Designed by Augusto Quijano Arquitectos the refined contemporary residence was crafted for a couple whose kids no longer lived at home.

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!
