Compact Leisure Home Pays Tribute to Brazilian Modernist Architecture

0

This stunning leisure home has an unusual story. It was built as a second home for a couple who lives in an apartment in São Paulo, but did not want to spend hours on end in the car to get away from the bustling city during weekends. With a small daughter and another baby on the way, this family commissioned CR2 Arquitetura to built them a 185 square meter leisure home less than a kilometer from the apartment they inhabit now.

This Brazilian heaven photographed by Rafaela Netto is a compact, sleek and functional home that extends the family’s happiness by allowing them to enjoy a manicured green space outdoors. Private and displaying flexible spaces, the modern leisure home is protected by a wooden pergola overlooking the garden and thrives on sunshine that floods the spaces with natural light.
