Most modern homes tend not to dabble too much with textural contrast. It is not too hard to understand why though, with contrasting textures becoming hard to balance even at the best of times. But this renovated Brazilian home manages to find that fine line between elegance, effortless blend of different materials and finishes and a cheerful ambiance as it brings together wood, concrete, glass and even geometric tiles! The confluence of these diverse elements is truly exceptional and becomes even more appealing when you realize that the home still manages to remain largely understated.
Sliding glass doors with wooden frames connect the social zone with the yard and deck
Designed by Vasco Lope Asrquitetura, Barão Geraldo Residence is a single level urban residence that was in need of a light-filled makeover. Replacing the old yard with a curated, modern outdoor space and connecting it with the indoors, designers gave this modest house a completely new look. Sliding wooden frames with glass become the connection between the new social zone on the inside and the lovely deck and garden outside. A pergola structure extends the outdoor hangout while an accent wall in concrete and wood steals the show on the inside. Then there is the large, floor-to-ceiling bookshelf that brings color in its own unique way!
