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 common theme of the home seems to be a rustic charm and uniqueness that comes wrapped in soft colors and a touch of contemporary style; something that seems all too natural for a Nordic setting and style!
Unlike the modern minimalist trend this one is from an era where various shades and designs were used lavishly to create vibrant and cheerful interiors. And there is indeed nothing ‘neutral’ about the interiors here as each room seems to have its own distinctive personality and with even unusual décor like the brass pole in the kitchen and old record player that is showcased in the living room.
Some of the many green measures include the use of recycled Blackbutt timber in an extensive fashion both on outside and for the interiors to cut down both costs and carbon footprint high-performance glazing helps in better insulation and hence tones down the power bills in both the summer and the winter smart design and thermal insulation.
A well-appointed rooftop lounge area gives you a specious gathering area for celebrations or a relaxing time beneath the stars. The dark wood beneath your feet invites you to shed your shoes and socks and soak up the warmth of the sun captured by the flooring.
Lastly there’s a suspended wood-structured volume that will make you feel like you’re living in a tree — given the amazing views; it’s where you wanna be for your peaceful moments for meditation or just to relax. The modern design of the house the modern furniture and the fresh colors (plenty of white green and blue) makes of this place an oasis of comfort and relaxation where you can admire the beauty of nature.
With the structure of the home itself occupying all the area of the plot available for construction the designers went ahead and incorporated a vertical garden that allows the residents of the home to grow some green in the limited space.
