Simplicity is beauty and often it is the most obvious designs that offer smart spatial solutions even while providing gorgeous aesthetics. Nestled on a lush green lot in Brazil this fabulous contemporary home was built by Bernardes Arquitetura using intersecting planes and parallel walls made of pigmented concrete.
White is the color of choice throughout the house with wood ushering in warmth and textural contrast. The upper level holds the adult and kids’ bedrooms creating a clear separation between public and private areas even as modern décor and woodsy accents complete this beautiful Aussie home.
Clever arrangement of spaces throughout the house also ensures that the flow between one to the next is unhindered. Opening up to the backyard the rear addition invites the outdoors inside with large glass windows which take a metallic bay window form when they transition into the bedrooms and kids’ spaces.
The modern home in Melbourne designed by po-co Architecture borrows from the beautiful Victorian street façade of its neighbors but gives them a contemporary twist with a more charming adaptation! On the inside though the house is a picture of urban sophistication serenity and spaciousness!
We often see heritage homes across Australia get a modern makeover on the inside while the street façade is untouched and kept intact for obvious reasons. Nestled in a neighborhood filled in heritage homes the is a contemporary residence that embraces some of the classical characteristics to blend in with its historic surroundings.
A host of eco-friendly features put the final touches on this Aussie escape with passive solar design top-notch insulation rainwater harvesting and on-site sewage treatment allowing the house to largely function off-the-grid.
It almost feels like a magical little space that has come alive from the page of a fairytale book and as you step inside the different sized opening between the various rooms inside adds to this wonder.
It is easy to fall in love with this Aussie beach house not just because of the views on offer but also thanks to the interior that is entirely draped in wood.
