Beyond the fabulous home theater or the spacious home studio acoustics take a backseat to visual design almost everywhere else. But the takes an entirely different approach as its exterior overall form and unique curved wooden façade is shaped by a need to keep away urban noise. Designed by BC Estudio Architects this modern residence in sits on a lot that is close to a road with high traffic.
Working around unique constraints presented by rugged landscape often brings the very best in architects and results in homes that reimagine conventional design. The irregular shape and sloped terrain of a corner lot in Bragança Paulista meant that Reinach Mendonça Arquitetos Associados had to create an innovative home plan that overcame spatial and aesthetic hurdles.
Beyond the aesthetics the house does all it can to cut back on carbon footprint with solar panels that the power the house and geo heating and cooling system that cuts back reliance on conventional power even further. With a smart home control system and top-quality insulation the residence is a near zero-energy house that almost produces all the energy it consumes.

Nestled on an isolated lot in this fascinating retreat is all about ease elegance and eco-friendly panache.
Complete with a kitchen spacious living room bedroom and bathroom this is not just a shabby little hangout where comfort is sparse. Stunning views of the landscape are combined with coziness while the prefabricated nature of the structure ensures that the scenery around the retreat is left completely untouched.

The large residence was designed for a modern family with four boys and it is the rear wing of the house that holds the four bedrooms for the teenagers along with additional living space and and outdoor hangout. It is the entry pavilion that contains the main living space with the master suite above and leads to the kitchen and dining wing. All the socials zones flow into the courtyard and pool deck where the family can come together after a long hard day.
The slanted roof of the house is another striking feature that sets it apart from the many mundane homes that you come across. Despite its more modest outward appeal on the inside each room of the house is much larger than one anticipates and the exceptional roof design creates airy light-filled spaces across the three different levels.
