Light House

Best Implemented Apartment / Private House Interior Design Project

About the project
The building, possibly from the late 1950s, built in a leafy neighborhood, presented a mix of styles, arising from successive extensions and renovations, but had the ideal area. Then an ambitious renovation project began, which reconfigured all spaces and brought construction to contemporaneity. Some points of distribution of the house were maintained as a garage and services at the front, as well as the staircase position. Others have been completely reconfigured as the living room, which is now completely open to the back of the site, where the pool and lounge area have been repositioned.
A request from the owner was that the house must be extremely bright, with as many openings as possible and with materials that reflect natural light. For this, the use of minimalist aluminum and glass frames, white marble Paraná was explored throughout the ground floor, and some walls in raw travertine, a material chosen for the entire external area.
