Designed by architecture company Studio MK27, this charming one level home located in Salvador, Brazil showcases quite a few interesting features.
Paying tribute to sustainability and green thinking, the residence is energy efficient, without integrating state-of-the-art technology, making it a lovely tradition-oriented crib. According to the architects, The Bahia House “uses all many elements that are traditional to Brazilian houses. These adjustments of the Portuguese house to a tropical climate were always studied and applied by modernism in Brazil. The result in this case is a very pleasant house, where the interior protects from the hot and sunny climate outdoors. The floor plan is entirely organized around a central patio, making the cross ventilation in all the spaces possible and a view that looks in, to a grassed garden and two exuberant mango trees”. Wood is the defining element for the entire design of the residence, inspiring comfort and warmth. The entire program is focused on a powerful indoor/outdoor connection, ensured by generous windows and a large terrace.
