A Modern Home In Itajaí, Brazil With A Cantilevered Swimming Pool
This hillside home from Brazil has a ton of cool design features. For starters, check out that awesome. cantilevered swimming pool! But let’s start from the beginning. This beautiful is the work of studio Schuchovski Arquitetura and occupies a plot in Itajaí, Brazil.
It’s up on a hilltop and the area is surrounded by a forest which makes it a prime spot for admiring the magnificent views from. That was actually one of the objectives of this project: to take advantage of the scenery and to incorporate the outdoors into the design in a seamless and natural way. One enters the house through a spacious double-height atrium and is then welcomed into the dining area which has this stylish large table with rounded edges. Above the table, a set of metal pendant lamps with sculptural designs draw the eye up and give this area a refined look. A green wall separates the dining room from the living area. More cleverly designed dividers have been throughout the rest of the house as well.
The living room is spacious but also very inviting. It has a fireplace and a big sliding glass wall that can be opened in order to let the outdoors in. Past it is a water pool surrounded by vegetation and beyond that a panoramic view over the forest. More stylish areas follow, like a kitchen hidden behind an elegant bar and a second living room with a magenta sofa, a really cool area rug, colorful abstract art on the wall and a connection to an open deck. Out there there’s also the cantilevered swimming pool which we mentioned in the beginning. It has a triangular shape and glass railings for an unobstructed view.
