A big part of modern home design is finding that balance between complete privacy and an ability to interact with the surroundings and enjoy the outdoors without any hindrance. Bringing these 2 contrasting worlds together in an uncomplicated and effective fashion is the TSJ 01 House designed by Studio Gabriel Garbin Arquitetura in Itu , Brazil. The basic design of this house is simple with the space created by the L-shaped structure being turned into a gorgeous outdoor zone, pool area and garden. On the other side is the street façade that keeps out prying eyes even while providing a lovely entryway.
Despite the presence of large windows, floor-to-ceiling glass doors and a pavilion-style living area that completely opens up towards the courtyard, the house feels entirely secure. Clean lines, an exterior draped in white and modern décor give it a crisp, contemporary appeal with the social zones and living room at the heart of it all. Either ends of the house contain the bedrooms, bathrooms and the more private spaces and a transition between the interior and the courtyard is seamless and natural. With no shortage of natural light, a cheerful and refreshing ambiance holds sway inside.
