Ulisses Morato’s modern mountain home in Brazil
Sitting on a hilltop in Minas Gerais, Brazil, and facing a vast valley, this award-winning contemporary mountain home is a great example of how rational modern design and Nature’s beauty can distinguish and highlight one another at the same time. Geometric shapes oppose the landscape’s organic forms, and the bold white-red-orange color scheme makes the building stand out even more amid the surrounding greenery. Designed by Ulisses Morato of Morato Arquitetura and influenced by Portuguese colonial architecture, this beautiful single house is built on three levels and uses the steeply sloping plot the best way possible. As for the views to the valley – one word: breathtaking.
