AL House is wonderful modern home designed by Studio Arthur Casas in the South Zone of the city of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.
According request from client, architects created modern dream home which takes maximum out of this stunning location. Incredible Rio’s mountains in the back and “never ending” ocean in front of the house make combination that is hard to forget or ignore. Here, the living area extends out to the pool deck in one clean sweep, gathering stunning panoramas of the surroundings. Big areas made from glass with combination of stone offers unique experience and design which completely redefines the way we used to build and live in our homes.
Priority was ensuring that the house maintain cleanliness and tidiness, not just in design but in the materials themselves. Therefore, the floors and much of the millwork are made from special type of hardwood that architect chose for its innate toughness both for indoors and outdoors. Also stunning is using of unique stones, which had to be the same peach-beige-gray color which investor had seen years before at the Western Wall in Jerusalem which raises total luxury.
