Using a series of pergolas, balconies and nifty little niches, an array of delightful outdoor spaces were created that are constantly connected with the lower level living space. Large glass windows and sliding glass doors play their part as well in this fabulous narrative where the lush green backyard becomes a dynamic backdrop for the neutral living area, kitchen and dining room. The Cor-ten steel pergola structure that sits just outside the living room also shapes the balcony for the top floor while the revamped swimming pool and large deck provide ample space to rest and rejuvenate on those lazy summer evenings.

Breezy, beautiful and practical, this is a transformation that seems to epitomize Brazil’s love for the outdoors! [Photography:
