Today’s dream home is located in São Paulo, sunny Brazil. Inspired by its splendid water features, the name defines the calming effect it has on inhabitants and guests – Casa d’Agua. Rising two stories over the ground, the contemporary volumes shaping this exceptional display of modern architecture shelter bright, open living spaces on the ground floor and private retreats on the next level. Imagined by São Paulo-based studio Isay Weinfeld, the white Brazilian residence welcomes guests with a narrow pool running along the house, across the whole length of the property.
The first part is pierced by large granite stones shaping a pathway leading towards the swimming pool that continues until reaching the back wall. This long water feature was the best solution for the narrow site area and allowed the architects to divide the interiors into two separate volumes. Rooms facing either north, east or west receive blessed sunlight and have a good isolation, providing a comfortable atmosphere inside. A beautiful feature perfects the display of water – thick natural-twine ropes hang over the central courtyard, filtering sunshine and acting as an artistic separator in an outdoor environment.
