Between Brazil and Europe
Posted on July 25, 2014
The large living room on the ground floor is the flagship of DM House, a mansion of St. Paul dating back to the seventies, restored, enlarged and decorated by Guilherme Torres . The architect wanted to integrate into the spirit of the typical Brazilian house, furnishings and materials from Europe.
MD House is a villa of 370 square meters on two levels. On the ground floor Torres has entered the kitchen and dining room in one room that communicates with the living area. At the top level space are five bedrooms and a second living room with terrace.
The glazed ceramic wall that is the backdrop to the dining area gives light and color to the entire room. The concrete table, a project extemporaneous Torres born by chance during the restoration work, takes up the finish on the floor, which extends over the entire surface of the house.
The architect Torres has transformed the ground floor room, which was once used as a wine cellar, living in a very bright, thanks to the triple exposure of the garden. The large openings profiled black outline of suggestive pictures that allow nature to come into the house, itself becoming part of the furniture.
