But there are lucky ones who already have their own summer house — I’m talking about this beautiful and relaxing condo in Iporanga Brazil. Actually it is a condominium for summer houses on Sao Paulo’s coast designed by Nitsche Arquitetos Associados.
The has nothing if not history. Constructed at the end of the 19th century this aristocratic abode combines classic elegance and centuries-old architectural concepts with modern design and eclectic décor. However even though the villa has been restored to include many more modern conveniences upon stepping inside this villa you are immediately transported back in time. The extravagant styles and lush colors are among the most stylish in the entire country.
All of the apartment’s architectural materials have been sensitively selected to add a contemporary feel to the apartment both contrasting and complementing the historic frontage of the historic building beneath. The main structure is clad in a lightweight silver and white Alucobond skin; limestone and Calcutta marble stonework and lime washed timber floorboards and decking complete the elegant design.
This led to the creation of a very unique house that uses uniquely crafted wooden blinds that sync with the rest of the home and shut out the outside world when needed. (OR rather when the prying eyes are not needed) Solar-water heating cross-ventilation rainwater harvesting features and natural lighting make up the array of green features that help the building stay sustainable. On the inside the three-floor house are covered in a fine balance of wood and concrete to offer perfect ambiance.
The architects have divided the available space into two broad sections – an active area and a quiet zone and the entire arrangement follows this predetermined pattern. The beautiful open dining space an ultra-modern kitchen and a relaxing living area with a large L-shape sofa taking a center spot are arranged ever so elegantly to ensure that function naturally follows form.
