Perched atop a steep hilly site in São Paulo makes the most of the unique position it occupies and ensures that the landscape around it ends up being the showstopper at this expansive and open contemporary residence.
On the inside it is neutral hues that hold sway with shades of gray white and warm wooden accents fashioning open living spaces and cozy private quarters that feel both elegant and inviting.
The floor plan inside was revamped removing unnecessary partitions and creating more room for the new entry living area and other public spaces. The color scheme is neutral with a white backdrop being energized by exposed wooden ceiling beams and rustic surfaces that usher in ample visual and textural contrast.
Designed by InForm the bedrooms sit on the top level at the front and take in the park views even as the open living area and the rear garden act as the breezy family zone. The focus at this contemporary Aussie home is definitely outdoor living and the way it interacts with the open living space indoors.
With a rugged coastline on one side that sees arguably some of the roughest weather on the planet and a beautiful forest on the other the cabin is perfectly placed to make the most of the amazing views on offer. This is precisely why Design Base 8 and Omar Gandhi Architect opted for a three-story structure that towers over the forest canopy with elegance!
The old kitchen was turned into an informal second entrance and workspace while a smart custom staircase next to the dining area also holds tiered storage closets that allow the homeowners to keep the interior far more organized.
Cabinetry in mahogany extends through the kitchen dining room and living area on the lower level and seems to connect the interior visually even as a private central courtyard provides a much needed escape and party zone.
