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.

Four bar stools line up along the kitchen island, providing a casual breakfasting area. 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. A window cuts through the backsplash area at the back of the kitchen, bringing in more serene blue seascape and palm tree greenery. | 23 |.
On the floor plan we can see a hallway leads off the side of the TV room to the three double bedrooms. The master suite has its own walk-through wardrobe, and each bedroom has an ensuite bathroom. There is also a small powder room located just off the dining room/kitchen area for guests. | 24 |.
Wood cladding colours and textures the wall behind the wall mounted TV, which brings a wonderful warmth to the predominantly white room. It also builds the visual illusion of bringing this far flung end of the room closer to the core of the action. | 20 |.
When the wooden shutters are drawn across the floor to ceiling glass walls of the living room, the interior finds relief from the glare of the blazing Brazillian sunshine. Large format tiles keep the floor cool and clean, and unfaded by the suns rays. | 21 |.
At the opposite end to the home theatre there is a formal dining area and a kitchen diner. 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 |.
Moving inside of the home, we find a living room with a spectacular view. The interior is made to feel airy and spacious by sticking to a minimal amount of furniture–whilst still being practical and comfortable for family and guests. | 17 |.
This outdoor area, with its pool and awesome views, make it the most important social area of the whole house. The deck provides the perfect location to take in a beautiful sunset, or take an invigorating swim at sunrise. | 9 |.
The house beds down in grassy banks, amongst mature palm trees that block out the view of far flung neighbours. The wild terrain provides a peaceful sense of seclusion and being as one with nature. | 5 |.
