Architect Leo Romano completed the layout of Patio House in Goiania, Brazil. From the street, the every day lives of the residents are concealed by 2 stacked volumes: a yellow 1 beneath and a white cantilevered rectangular box on top.
The U-shaped home surrounds an inner courtyard, a swimming pool and lounge room. 1 side of the home opens to the patio by means of sliding glass doors with white sliding shutters, top to a single broad stairway.
The principal entrance is flanked by 2 imposing walls, one particular of which attributes a pattern of triangular piercings. The contemporary interiors are brilliant and spacious, with original furnishings and decor. Wood accents make certain a cozy, welcoming feel.
In the kitchen, the triangular pattern from the facade is reflected on 1 of the walls. The patterned fridge complements this play of light. A huge open-plan residing region extends outdoors. Seating places throughout the house make it clear that the home was created for loved ones gatherings and enjoyment.
The Patio Home serves as a research in contrasts: basic yet interesting, functional yet stylish, modern day yet warm. What are your ideas about this venture? [Photography by Edgard Caesar]
