Commissioned for a young couple in Brazil, the “LA House”, designed by Studio Guilherme Torres, differs from its surrounding condos with its extra private space due to enhanced height through the foundation of a plateau at ground level. Before you even enter the house, a big wooden box made out of Brazilian teak cumaru wood would make any passerby turn and look. Walls surround the trapezoidal house and defines the area for the garden and swimming pool.
Moreover, the entrance gate leads the visitor to walk by the pool and enter the living area. High ceilings and glass walls fill the kitchen and living spaces with natural light and ventilation, while Invader-decorated walls and furniture of yellow, black, and white add a spice of color. The master bedroom and balcony on the second story provides residents with a view over the hilltop neighborhood and green surroundings. Individuality gives this project a timeless touch that shows an uncomplicated, simpler way of living.
