A Contemporary Urban Residence In Brazil [Video]

In São Paulo, Brazil, a contemporary residence stands bold in sheets of steel, raw concrete and wood. The modern mass is set back from the street, discreetly shielded by corrugated steel gates and tall hedgerows. Created by FCstudio architects, the 424 square metre residence was designed for a couple with two young daughters. To practically accommodate their energised family lifestyle, the main floor of the home is fashioned to flow seamlessly into the garden. This indoor-outdoor functionality keeps everyone connected whilst carrying out their activities. Fully hidden by its solid borders, the garden feels like a quiet, green oasis in the bustling urban landscape.
