An antique cottage has a strong historic appeal and rocks the shabby almost abandoned look. It’s truly an off-the-grid paradise for those who are happy to trade luxury for nature’s delight. Sometimes the exterior of such a tiny hut almost loses itself amongst the matching trees. The dark and shabby state of the wood makes it an outstanding piece that embodies the concept of nature as the main building element.
To say that is a place for glitz glamor and all things affluent would be a great understatement. It is home for the rich and the famous and a party zone that is studded with the most luxurious homes and retreats that you will ever come across.
Beyond the passive solar design principles a lovely garden and green landscape around the residence add to its sustainable style. Despite a modest street façade the house opens up towards the rear and brings the outdoors inside.
It is in this star-struck neighborhood that one finds this mesmerizing contemporary home designed by renowned architect Marcio Kogan and built by Brodson Construction. Set on a 1 acre lot the 15000 square foot house floors you with its expansive interiors and an even more outlandish landscape that is filled with a man-made lagoon saltwater pool beautiful walkways and plenty of natural greenery.
A multi-level arrangement of the rooms ensures that each space flows into the next as the living area exudes a cheerful bright and contemporary vibe. Natural light permeates through to the lowest level of the house thanks to this spatial arrangement even as the stairwell with skylight above adds to this illuminated brilliance.
A smart blend of contrasting finishes that include copper stone terrazzo and beeswax plaster create a fun interior where artwork and accessories add bright and vivacious color.
A unique vertical design is ideal for a house that’s built around a tree! It brings an element of nature onto every floor of the home where the transparent wall offers a 360° view of the landscape. A house that combines the wooden exterior with gentle pastel shades truly represents the newer concepts of modern housing design and captures a fresh and bright look!
