We all have had that moment in our lives when we feel that all we need is just ‘one more room’ to truly complete our home. And then we move on to a bigger house and the feeling remains despite all that newfound space!
It is the lower level that houses the living area kitchen dining space home theater and other social areas and seems to effortlessly transition into the large wooden decks and pool area just outside. An infinity edge pool with a Brazilian teak deck a spa and walls clad in reclaimed brick add to the exclusivity of this serene and sensational Sao Paulo home.
Wood steel concrete and glass shape both the exterior and the interior of the house with the bay windows making a big difference to its overall form. With concrete and custom wooden shelves also making a big impact in the kitchen there is plenty of contrast to be found all around – both in terms of style and texture!
The new open plan living area flows into the cool dining space that overlooks the deck outside with the small kitchen in white sitting next to it. A drawing room sits between the living room and the kitchen and acts as a connecting and transitional zone. Two relaxing bedrooms and a bathroom on the top level complete the exquisite makeover that finds a balance between modernity and classic elegance!
But what sets this fabulous modern home next to apart is its striking exterior crafted mainly from Cor-Ten steel and in-situ concrete with glass and brick also being used sporadically. Giving the exterior a bright orange and modern industrial appeal this smart residence designed by Sandy Rendel Architects draws your attention instantly.
The concrete lower structure offers a perfect stable base for the four-bedroom residence with the cor-ten walls and roof of the top level bringing in the wow factor. On the inside the image changes dramatically with neutral hues and the warmth of wood offering a relaxing contemporary retreat.
Steel-gray granite white stucco timber slats and wooden battens shape the distinct façade of this Indian home along with the generous use of glass. Completely opening up to the greenery that surrounds it the overall form of the house mimics that of a multilevel gallery.
