Concrete walls indoor green zones and décor that is simple and neutral ensure that the focus at this mesmerizing Brazilian home stays firmly on the scenic beauty that surrounds it. A perfect getaway that allows the homeowners to escape the constant rush of big city life and soak in nature’s ever-changing sights and sounds!
The most attractive aspect of this gorgeous contemporary residence is undoubtedly the stunning sea views that it offers thanks to the great vantage point it enjoys. Making the most of the scenic backdrop was one of the intentions that shaped the new living area that opens up towards the coastline even as the street façade offers complete privacy.
Transforming the old mezzanine level into the new kitchen was accomplished by incorporating a stunning natural stone kitchen island cabinets draped in oak veneer and stainless steel worktops that complement the existing farmhouse-style stove perfectly.
Rough weather is the norm here and the entire structure of the cabin has been built to withstand this relentless onslaught from the elements by using redundant sheathing and a strong structural plan. Step inside and warm wooden tones welcome you gleefully and offer a pleasant break from the tough outdoors.
As is the case with most modern homes it is a neutral color palette that acts as a beautiful and unassuming canvas for the designer to showcase her true brilliance. Each room is filled with bespoke décor wonderful accessories and a fabulous piece of wall art or two and each one of them complements the other perfectly.
The new homeowners of this post war two-story house wanted a contemporary interior that was breezy devoid of unnecessary partitions and featured a rear extension that offered additional living space. Scenario Architecture accomplished this by creating an open sitting area on the lower level with just a fireplace wall separating the reception area from the kitchen.
