Imposing Atenas 038 House in Brazil by Dayala + Rafael Arquitetura
Brazilian studio Dayala + Rafael Arquitetura has designed the Atenas 038 House. Completed in 2007, this 4,850 square foot, contemporary home is located in Goiânia, the capital and largest city of the Brazilian state of Goiás. The side of the project facing the street is partially closed, ensuring a high level of privacy. This gets compensated with a large facade opening up the building towards the swimming pool and backyard. A generous deck provides enough space for lounge chairs and covered area for entertainment. The interiors are imposing and seem to orbit around the open plan, double-hight living room, connected to the outdoor terrace. An elegant staircase leads the way towards the upper floor, where the private areas are located.
