Garden House by David Guerra

Garden House by David Guerra
Email David Guerra is the Brazilian architect that redesigned the Garden House, a 1980′s house located in Brazil. This amazing house was constructed considering some important aspects like the interior/exterior integration which was planned to be bigger. This was possible using the garden day by day and it not only helped at the integration but also at the lighting of the rooms that used to be dark. To be suitable for the new owners the house was modernized adding new spaces that can be used in different ways. Besides this process the architects though to destroy walls, transform doors, windows and attatch protection covering, substitute products, recuperate structures, new eletric, new hydraulic, new illumination, an atelier, a wine cellar, gourmet kitchen, bathroom, sauna, deck and pool. There was used a mix of styles including classics, ethnics, contemporaries and Brazilian references.

The Meera House by Guz Architects We have already reviewed the Fish House by Guz Architects, and now present another project of these talented designers. The houses have much in common and it is difficult to say which one is more beautiful. The Meera House is located on the island of Sentosa adjacent to Singapore and amazes with its magnificence. Looking from above, the house is like a green oasis, because roof and terraces are covered with grass and some trees. But this is not the only outstanding feature of this splendid design. Beautiful view of the water, the incredible staircase and swimming pool separated by glass walls are also impressed by their originality. Sky Garden House I think one of the reasons that many are skeptical about environmental design is because they think its terribly complex and costly. It does take a bit more effort on the front end, but it's definitely not rocket science. This architecture by Guz Architects is a wonderfully developed minimalistic design with a curvilinear flare that really brings out the organic coverings. I'm most impressed with how design facilitates the needs of the plants and shrubs located throughout the house. See more at Guz Architects

Mirindiba House by Marcio Kogan Mirindiba House by Marcio Kogan When it comes to residential architecture in 21st century Brazil, few are as gifted as Marcio Kogan. His Paraty House on the Atlantic coast may be our favorite home built in the last decade, one that we’ve often dreamed of spending a night (or a year) in. In looking back at Kogan’s portfolio, we decided to share an older gem of the Brazilian architect, the Mirindiba House, completed in 2008. The Mirindiba House displays the signature Kogan forms and textures, with rectangular concrete sections inset with dark wood and stone work accent walls inside and out.
