Studio Dayala + Rafael Arquitetura designed the massive Atenas 038 House, a modern project in Goiânia, Brazil. Occupying a total area of 4,850 square feet, the residence is a giant display of opulence. The side of the project facing the street is partially closed, ensuring a high level of privacy. This gets compensated with a large facade opening up the building towards the swimming pool and backyard. A generous deck provides enough space for lounge chairs and covered area for entertainment. The interiors are imposing and seem to orbit around the open plan, double-hight living room, connected to the outdoor terrace. An elegant staircase leads the way towards the upper floor, where the private areas are located. How do you find the overall design of this modern home in Brazil? Would you consider living in such an imposing home? [Photos by: Leandro Moura]

Faleiro Guerra Arquitetura have sent us images of the Alphaville House in Brazil.
Rich in details. Sofisticated architecture. Imponent with its geometric shapes and pure cosiness, due to its serene atmosphere. That is the definition for this residency idealized by the Faleiro Guerra Arquitetura office.
Another quality that could describe this design succinctly is its contemporary character. According to the architects Patrícia Guerra e Roziane Faleiro, “the strength of the Project lays on the appreciation of the contemporary architecture, with bold traits and accurate design”.
In fact, that can be clearly noticed right at the entrance of the house. The combination of different shapes values the facade. The portico with double height emphasizes the entry way and makes evident the nuances used all over the house, in the outside as well as in the inside. “The light color is a solution that values the straight lines of the design”, explain the specialists.
Not only has the architecture states the modern tone of this house, but also a principle that Faleiro Guerra applies to all projects: the concern about sustainability. “The underground reservatory built under the garage is destined to the rain water storage. In that way, the family can reuse this water in the garden and toilet. This is how we managed to give our contribution to helping the environment”, points out Patrícia.
The connection with nature also shows the sustainable character of the architecture company. “We divided the house and placed a fruit tree in the central patio. The tree can be seen from all internal angles of the house. This is meant to set a pleasant ambience all around”, explains Roziane. Speaking of feeling, this solution also favours the cross ventilation and lightining inside the property.
The landscape is another aspect that makes this house a very special construction. The Lagoa dos Ingleses gives a magic tone to the place. The amazing view was the reason for the architects` decision on positioning the pool and leisure área in front of the land. “The feeling is that the house is an extention of the lake, as if both were mixed, creating an unique and oustanting scenery”, vibrate Patrícia e Roziane.

Kwartet Arquitetura designed an apartment located in a residential neighbourhood of Sao Paulo, Brazil that gathers luxurious and comfortable modern furniture in a well-designed space. Rearranged for a young couple who travels quite a lot, the apartment was personalized to display a beautiful collection of travel memorabilia in the living room, creating a “travel corner”. The spaces were also prepared to welcome children in the future. A master bedroom, a guest bedroom and an office space that can eventually be transformed into a children’s room make up the private spaces of the apartment. The entertaining and living spaces are displayed around a central living room that features a comfy white Eames Chair that sets the tone for the colour palette. Some special items were custom designed by Kwartet Arquitetura for this residence: “We specified the finishes and design all the woodwork. We also design the upper door trim higher, up to the ceiling, to create a sensation of higher high ceiling. The baseboard follow the same concept. The Tauari flooring and the wood home theater panel provides a warm atmosphere contrasting with the bright yellow bar table and gray buffet lacquer. Classic design pieces stand alongside contemporary ones. The headboard was built with eight mdf panels upholstery with linen and sconces fixed on the surface. The white and golden petit poa wallpaper and the dark blinds dressed the room.”

Kwartet Arquitetura have designed this apartment interior in São Paulo, Brazil.
Description from Kwartet Arquitetura:
We were hired to design the project at the time that the building had finished construction. It´s located in a residential neighborhood in São Paulo.
We did a few changes that improved and rearranged the master bedroom and closet in order to create a unique and cozy area; the owners are a young couple that travel a lot and want to have kids, so because of that, we decided to keep the other two rooms, using one of them as a home office. In the living room we created a “travel corner”, the most important feature, where they can display all the gadgets they bring from their trips.
We specified the finishes and design all the woodwork. We also design the upper door trim higher, up to the ceiling, to create a sensation of higher high ceiling. The baseboard follow the same concept.
The Tauari flooring and the wood home theater panel provides a warm atmosphere contrasting with the bright yellow bar table and gray buffet lacquer. Classic design pieces stand alongside contemporary ones.
The headbord was built with eight mdf panels upholstery with linen and sconces fixed on the surface. The white and golden petit poa wallpaper and the dark blinds dressed the room.
