Conjured up and brought to life by Reinach Mendonça Arquitetos Associados this is a holiday and weekend home for a modern family that creates a cozy alchemy of modern comfort and natural goodness.
With a steel frame a low supporting wall onto which the cabinets and workstation from bulthaup were fixed and sliding glass doors the new kitchen is a truly awesome setting that is both cheerful and functional. The old kitchen inside the home was transformed into a light-filled foyer that now leads the way to the kitchen even as the double-glazed glass walls help in temperature control.
As is the norm in most modern homes the architects rely on large sliding glass doors to create this seamless transition from the industrial-modern living area to the grand courtyard. Corrugated siding metallic surfaces a live edge dining table and colorful artwork fashion an interior that retains an air of edgy industrial style despite its relaxing ambiance.
But the in takes a completely different approach as it acquires a striking and dramatic front-façade clad in a matte black material that is usually employed in making skateboarding ramps!
