Located in São Paulo, this beautiful house by Studio Arthur Casas has a central patio which transforms into an interior garden and has two sections connected by a corridor. The ground floor consists of various paths that lead to the local beach. Public areas such as the kitchen and dining room are also located on the ground floor and have low ceilings which enable the high ceiling of the living room to be revealed through a glass sliding door. A glass staircase leads to the second floor and while the ground level is made of stone, the second floor is finished with wood - this is where the bedrooms are located. The cantilevered en suite master bedroom on the upper floor shelters the front outdoor cooking area where a swimming pool and sauna are located.
I love how the open plan layout blurs the boundaries between the interior and exterior. It is beautifully spacious, enabling plenty of natural light whilst being private due to surrounding walls.
