Shaped by stunning mountains all around and defined by the unique lot on which it sits this in works within the existing limitations to make the most of both space and the views on offer. The sloped triangular lot the family residence sits on plays a major role in shaping its overall silhouette along with local construction guidelines that mandate the use of wood for at least 30 percent of the home’s surface area. Walking this architectural tightrope and delivering in style GCA Architects ensured that the dwelling did not compromise on unabated views even while offering adequate privacy to those inside.
It is beautiful area rugs bookshelves and wall art that bring color and energy to a home that is otherwise draped in white. A wall of floor-to-ceiling glass windows and doors welcomes the spectacular mountain view inside as it becomes the highlight of each and every room throughout this lovely residence.
The house uses a color palette where bright and bold hues are shunned in favor of more serene tones and beautiful neutrals that paint a picture of tranquility. Step inside and one notices the wonderful use of contrasting materials and finishes as wooden slats bright metallic pendants and textured walls come together in a seemingly effortless fashion.
The outdoor living experience in the past decade has become far more luxurious and fun in the last few years with outdoor furniture and design matching the beauty and comfort of living room décor. It is barely a surprise then that homeowners are increasingly demanding dwellings that blur the traditional boundary between the interior and the landscape that surrounds the house creating a seamless indoor-outdoor interplay. Nestled in a lovely green neighborhood of Brazil the is no different as Lab Arquitetos transformed this 50s home into a modern masterpiece that encourages you to spend more time outside than indoors!
With absolutely no shortage of space the entire escape has been divided into three individual structures with the main residence containing the living area kitchen dining space and bedrooms. An 1140-square-foot carport with storage spaces a vegetable garden and other basic facilities sits next to the main house while an additional guest wing is located next to the pool area and the pool house.
The private top floor holds two bedrooms and bathrooms that provide spectacular views of the Pyrenees and the countryside. An unassuming wooden staircase with glass railing divides the home into two identical halves and ushers in a sense of symmetry and curated elegance.
Wood and marble bring textural contrast to different rooms of the house with the master bedroom and bathroom moving away from the rustic theme and embracing a more relaxing and refined modern feel. Designed to bring home the ‘holiday vibe’ life at this dashing residence is all about relaxation and fun.
