In Brazil, a House Like an Ocean Liner
Here’s a sunsoaked house from the Brazilian studio Pupogaspar Arquitetura.
Everything about it suggests a huge ocean liner.
But the house is in the city of Valinhos, São Paulo State, Brazil.
The short staggered wall is all that stands between this seemingly remote ocean liner and the street.
So the pool deck is close to this street below.
And these remote deck chairs are actually close to the street.
The distant ocean is brought close by this startlingly turquoise pool.
Being in this wonderful space would feel like being in a white stone pavilion looking out across to the green hillsides.
Inside, a vast old teak table balances the strong structural white pillars.
A gigantic pot suggests you are still outdoors in this glassed-in interior.
And a glossy kitchen continues the contemporary feel.
The plan totals 7,530 square feet between the two floors.
