The owner have a very clear goal: enjoy the astounding views of Rio’s mountains and sea. A long time client of Studio Arthur Casas, the businessman was a bachelor that wished to leave his apartment and conceive a house right from the beginning with the architects, starting with choosing the right plot.Save this picture!© Fernando Guerra | FG+SGLocated in the hills near São Conrado beach, the plot intrigued the client, as it had no direct view to the sea nor would be the best choice to contemplate the landscape. “For me it was clear we would be able to reach the view. I assured him that all the social areas would be intertwined with the landscape” affirmed Arthur Casas.Save this picture!SectionThe solution was to raise the entrance, the social areas and the pool to the second floor, above the guestrooms and service quarters surrounded by a garden. The spectacular views are present in all the living areas. Large glass panels slide and hide behind the walls in order to erase the borders between inside and outside. Great spans amplify spaces that have the same dimensions of a conventional construction. A third floor, with smaller proportions, houses private dependencies such as the master suite and the home office, both oriented to the horizon.Save this picture!© Fernando Guerra | FG+SGThe materials employed are inspired by the landscape, with local stone and cumaru wood. The interior design project favors comfort and casualness, with Brazilian furniture blended with foreign items.Save this picture!Floor PlanProject gallerySee allShow lessBOX 298 Building / Andrade Morettin Arquitetos AssociadosSelected ProjectsCurucura House / Unoencinco ArquitectosSelected Projects Share Manufacturers: panoramah!® Products translation missing: en-US.post.svg.material_description Year: CopyAbout this officeStudio Arthur CasasOfficeFollowProductsSteelStoneConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesFernando GuerraBrazilPublished on August 20, 2014Cite: “AL House / Studio Arthur Casas” 20 Aug 2014.
