A Brazilian Home of Elegant Luxury

Named Jaragua, this is a house where the sense of space can be felt throughout. Space was the guiding thread in this architecture and interior project by Fernanda Marques; Marques sought to meet the brief of a young couple with two children who are now the happy occupants of this comfortable property built along contemporary lines, with its three floors and an area of 1,200 in Alphaville, a residential district in the outskirts of Sao Paulo in Brazil.

Marques chose to split the building into three floors and made liberal use of terraces throughout the top floor to enable views of the beautiful landscape that surrounds the hill on which the house sits. "For the interiors, in turn, I envisioned broad spaces, developed continually, with no partitions," she said. On the ground floor, Marques concentrated the living room, fireplace room, dining room, media room and breakfast room, as well as the kitchen, study, cloakroom, guest toilet and the rooms for the domestic help.

An invitation to leisure, a large swimming pool opens up to the front terrace. On the upper floor is the family area, with their suites, their balconies and a family room. On the lower floor are the garage, storage room and a small workshop. Contemporary, art and design mix in the interior to create a laid back yet sophisticated ambience.
