A striking stone wall stands at the entry and offers the first dramatic visual element of the home. The gorgeous stone wall seems more rustic than modern and yet it blends in with the overall ‘serene’ appeal of Casa Finestrat.
The stone wall offers much more than support to the cantilevered structure as it divides the home into social and private spaces even as concrete pillars offer further support. With an elevated design the house gives those inside a smart view of the river from almost every level inside.
On the inside the glassy escape is unassuming with space being largely left vacant décor minimal and a kitchen clad in wood bringing warmth to the entire setting. The true purpose of the Hidden Pavilion is to take in nature at its undisturbed best even as you rediscover yourself and rejuvenate. Whether it is about a session of meditation or just spending a few days away from the daily routine this awesome hideaway provides the perfect setting for it all. Truly tranquil!
A double height living room aids in climate control inside the riverside residence while glass windows sliding doors and skylights bring in natural light. Bedrooms sit on the second floor and overlook the rear garden the distant river and the scenery beyond.
Finding refuge in nature is increasingly becoming the most preferred way forward when it comes to design of suburban homes. Nestled on a secluded lot in Brazil and overlooking river Arroio Pelotas this cantilevered contemporary home gleefully embraces the landscape around it.
