Compact Leisure Home Pays Tribute to Brazilian Modernist Architecture

This stunning leisure home has an unusual story. It was built as a second home for a couple who lives in an apartment in São Paulo, but did not want to spend hours on end in the car to get away from the bustling city during weekends. With a small daughter and another baby on the way, this family commissioned CR2 Arquitetura to built them a 185 square meter leisure home less than a kilometer from the apartment they inhabit now.

This Brazilian heaven photographed by Rafaela Netto is a compact, sleek and functional home that extends the family's happiness by allowing them to enjoy a manicured green space outdoors. Private and displaying flexible spaces, the modern leisure home is protected by a wooden pergola overlooking the garden and thrives on sunshine that floods the spaces with natural light.

The name of this home comes from its property dimensions – 7 x 37 m – which required a “rational construction, that optimizes the construction site, so we chose the metallic structure and the house was constructed in just eight months.” Resulting in a home that looks larger than it really is, this project is described as a multi-functional, site-specific dream home: “The initial request was a compact house, with flexible spaces considering a barbecue grill, a swimming pool, two suites and a big green area (as they live in an apartment)

The garden, together with the artistic panel designed by Athos Bulcão Foundation, connects all the social area of the house at the ground floor: leisure, kitchen / living and family room. This panel, along the entire length of the pool, is a tribute to the Brazilian modernist architecture and the client, who came from Brasilia and grew seeing the artist’s works. The kitchen/living room is a multiuse space, without any walls with a long bench that contains all the sinks, grill, cabinets, etc, from one side to another of the space.”

Charming Modern Home Extension Re-Shaping Socializing Opportunities

Extending a home to fit current needs is not to be taken easily. A modern home extension requires planning for future use and using what already exists to support that. An exemplary proof is Casa ATT by Dionne Arquitectos, a home in Puebla, Mexico, that was re-designed by the architects as a fuller, more nurturing collection of spaces. In their successful effort of renewing the outline of the house, architects integrated the new structure into the familiar floor plan by “generating clear transitional environments discovering visual axes and circulation leading to the new spaces.”

Plenty of socializing areas bring the family together: the new open social space, terrace and guest bedroom complete the necessary space and helps better organize the interiors. In addition, the terrace overlooking the garden connects the original volume with the new additions. In these photos captured by Patrick López Jaimes, the layout looks beautifully put together. From the front, the house looks private and once you step inside, details flood your design-hungry mind. According to the architects, “ATT House is a house in which a clear spatial harmony lives through environments that invite habitation.”

What do you think about this modern home extension? Can this home inspire you to extend your own piece of heaven? mo
