The Tetris House: A Creatively Organized Modern Brazilian Home

The name Tetris House likely calls to mind the brightly colored game, but it is not the colors or infectious music that are the inspiration for this Sao Paulo home. Instead, architects Marcio Kogan and Carolina Castroviejo found inspiration from the way that the boxes in that game fit together snugly. This home, like the game, seems to be made up of many different boxes that fit together, creating separate rooms that work in harmony with one another. The home is large and gorgeous, featuring a bold use of natural wood slats, creative circulation, and sleek furnishings that create a beautiful space perfect for luxurious Brazilian living as well as wonderful, boisterous entertaining.
