Modern homes are all about finding that perfect balance between a cozy, comfortable interior and a spacious, inviting outdoor area with a seamless synergy between the two. The Cuiabá House by Allouchie Arquitetos is one such beautiful residence where modern family life finds ample space to express itself. It is the Le Corbusier’s philosophy of using extended roof slabs, overhangs and smart sunscreens that was adopted to create smart and shaded outdoor zones that extend the living area and kitchen on the inside. The presence of overhangs also helps in keeping out scorching hot tropical sun and making the house a lot more energy-efficient.

Even though much of the focus remains on the wooden, courtyard, pool area and the shaded walkways, life on the inside is equally enjoyable with modern minimal style holding sway. Exposed concrete surfaces, brick walls painted in white and stone countertops in black create textural contrast without moving away from the neutral color scheme. Ergonomics precede flowery aesthetics here with low-maintenance finishes creating clever public and private spaces.
