One of the most distinctive features of the home is its that is covered in steel and ushers in an air of timelessness to an otherwise modern structure. Turning a normal home in a multi-level residence with a lovely attic the design of the house by Dorrington Atcheson Architects fuses a distinct silhouette with seamless modern ergonomics.
It is the double-height living room on the lower level that morphs into the heart and soul of the home with the dining area and kitchen on one side and the open outdoors on the other. Connected with the backyard pool area and the sweeping deck it has a relaxing outdoorsy feel and the open design with large glass doors and windows enhances this airy ambiance.
The undulating terrain of the plot meant that Felipe Bueno & Alexandre Bueno had to create a lower wing that contained the laundry cellar and garage while providing the top level with a base at uniform height. A green wall that took shape in the garden outside flows into the living room as well and brings along with it both natural freshness and ventilation.
