The address is remote and tricky. On the one hand they provide all the privacy, peace and quiet you want, and on the other hand it is not easy to get into other areas. That is to say, the design must be an enhanced security and functional design to take advantage of the harmonious integration of location, view and remoteness. This is a building in the tropical rainforest of São Paulo, Brazil. Designed and built by Studio MK27, it has many cool features, such as a swimming pool on the roof.
This is a perfect hideaway, a place surrounded by peace and tranquility, away from the city, hustle and bustle, pollution and all the pressure that comes with it. The scenery here is amazing, not only from the swimming pool on the roof, but also from the inside of the uppermost living space.
To successfully hide a house Architects must look for inspiration from the elements of nature and the surrounding houses. For example, a house surrounded by lush vegetation can use a green roof to establish a close relationship with the landscape. Similarly, the house on the beach of Tinos, Greece, incorporates an infinity pool as its large roof. In addition, the house partially fell into the ground and was built on the slope.
The Mirage house was designed by Kois Associated Architects and they want to let customers enjoy the beauty of the Aegean Sea without giving up privacy. As a result, the house was half buried in the landscape, except for a large open-air living area in front of the enlarged rooftop swimming pool. The pool acts like a huge mirror, helping to disguise the house and create a visual connection between the building and the ocean while keeping the interior cool.
Some houses are integrated with the landscape and communicate with the surrounding environment. Others are disguised as something else. We are talking about the transformation like this old factory. This is a former cement factory near Barcelona, Spain, built after the Second World War. After being abandoned for a few years, the architect Ricardo Bofill transformed it into his new home and studio. This is a long and complicated process. First, some elements must be dismantled, then uncover hidden structures and establish new relationships between structures.
It took a while, but the architect’s new design slowly began to take shape. Just as a sculptor removed several pieces and several layers of material in order to create a particular shape, the architect dismantled certain elements and uncovered other elements. Once completed, the planting process begins. As a series of gardens increased, the preserved plant structure was implanted with vegetation. The idea is to make the barriers between architecture and nature as seamless and fuzzy as possible. The former concrete factory is now a modern and stylish home and studio, which looks like a fortress outside, but the interior is warm and welcoming.
