There are plenty of things that Brazil is famous for across the world. There is football amazing beaches with a lifestyle that leaves you intoxicated and of course the rhythm of the samba! But only a true design aficionado would know that it also is home to arguably some of the best luxury homes and grand villas that are nestled in the lap of nature! Located in in the middle of the Atlantic Forest and overlooking the distant ocean the designed by Jacobsen Arquitetura is the latest entrant in this exclusive club.
The use of color along with curated decor ensures that the loft does not feel like a typical industrial-style home even while letting the past of the building peak through. Wooden surfaces add warmth to each room and multi-hued rugs put the icing on the cake in a home where class color and creativity come together in the most enjoyable fashion!
The dark exterior of the cottage allows it to blend in effortlessly with the landscape outside as dusk sets in everyday while the spacious deck area and the large living space with glass walls visually connect the interior with the outdoors. Panoramic views of the serene lake outside and the lush green natural canopy turn this retreat into a nature-lover’s delight…
The villa seems to blend intricate and unique details with an elegant modern style to offer a retreat that perfectly brings together form and functionality. Spread across several levels a large double-height entrance welcomes you here and leads toward the smart living area that seems to be inspired by coral reefs and the deep blue sea.
Here the local grasses and ivies beautifully combine with the stone architecture and make a large building seem cozier: This -style room shows what is possible when you think modern with a traditional cottage (here they’ve simply taken out the attic floor of a traditional cottage to give the space a cathedral ceiling).
Spread across three lavish levels that include a living area and wine cellar on the lowest level a home theater a laundry room a sitting area and guest space on the first floor and a master suite along with three additional bedrooms and a TV room on the top level this renovated house is all about sheer opulence.
A modern extension in the rear seems to be one of the most popular ways of giving heritage homes a new lease on life and adding to their existing living space. This is precisely the approach that LSA Architects took in the case of this exquisite home in as they turned the backyard into a breezy and bustling social hub for the family.
