Surrounded by lush greenery, this stunning luxury home in São Paulo, Brazil is the epitome of raw modern elegance. Featuring a monolithic suspended box structure with numerous lounging areas exposed to an exterior swimming pool, the resolute architecture of the residence tempts with a design minimalism that invites you to appreciate the incredible beauty of this modern masterpiece.
This radically simple yet sensationally beautiful luxury residence uses the tangible brute strength of material language throughout the upper volume and, as such, a large concrete box appears to be floating atop a glass volume. In the living room, which continues to the veranda and the garden, the doors open entirely, diluting the division between interior and exterior. The main entrance is attained through pivoting panels that also open entirely to the front garden. In the internal space, a long irregularly shaped custom sofa wriggles around the room, constructing a space with no hierarchy among the different orientations. All these prominent features seamlessly define the structural truth of the residence.
The solemnity of modern design and imagination dictate a structure that incorporates large spans, which accentuate the idea of a floating box, besides propitiating a totally free and continuous space. The use of raw concrete refers to modern buildings, aesthetically and functionally, as in a dialogue with this minimalistic architecture impregnated by the passage of time, exposes the existence of the life of a building that welcomes you to live, enjoy and entertain.
