Casa no Areal

In and out of the house

Located in Areal, Rio de Janeiro, but outside the city’s hassle, this a place open to the outdoors. Intown atelier took into account the clients’ preference for a minimal and contemporary sober décor and gave life to a house with about 1500 sq m, with and a landscape project which has plants common on the place’s surroundings and a swimming pool, with a separated whirlpool. The interiors are large and simply decorated and, beside the usual areas – such as living room, kitchen, bedrooms -, it has a spa, gym, dog kennel and a garage wide enough for six cars.
On what concerns materials, the architects chose concrete, glass and steel related with brutalism and a simple maintenance.
