Luxury Brazilian Hillside Home By The Sea

21 views

The Feiticeira house by HUS Arquitetos is a luxury home in Brazil, located high upon privileged terrain that overlooks the sparkling Atlantic Ocean. The dramatic slope of the plot is what steered the project planning and shaped the build. The home is actually several volumes, forming a complex developed over different levels. The multi level layout provides a more pleasant path down the green hillside toward the sea, where there is a pier and a wood deck to allow access to boats. A large sundeck extends from the main building as an outdoor social area, and as a place to cool off in the infinity pool. Away from this, the home is modest elegant simplicity.

The kitchen itself is sleek yet understated, in line with the rest of the home’s quietly elegant aesthetic. Light worktops wrap dark cabinets to build crisp contrast.

Eight people can dine at the huge dining table, looking out over breathtaking skyscapes and ocean views. Centrepieces and added extras are kept to a minimum throughout the interior, because who needs distractions with a panorama like that? | 22 |.
