Óbvio Architecture | Harmony between past and future

Architecture AV PP Flavia 4_pt

Inspired by the recent past, contemporary architecture, as opposed to modern production, aims highly for the elapsed time, without losing its major focus: the future. Thus, creates a perspective with wider horizon, refuses to impose itself to the known limits and takes past models to be copied or timidly adapted. Executed by the architects Luciana Araújo and Nathália Otoni, members of Óbvio Arquitetura, the house built in Minas Gerais, Brazil, materializes this whole concept.

To make the house of 287 square meters more welcoming, we opted for the use of wood, fiber and filleted stone. The choices of materials were made in a way that nature was brought into the house.

With the removal of a wall, this space was visually integrated into the living room – which is located on the first floor – becoming an extension of the main entrance. Thus the house was more receptive and casual. The stand, which unites the workbench with an exposure of adornments of the couple, has been designed by the professionals and is one of the highlights of the environment.

The use of the glass guardrails allowed greater visual permeability and the wood panel, along with soft lighting, left a pleasant and intimate space.

The latter is surrounded by gardens, being a transitional space between the inner and outer areas of the house. This transition takes place also in the sense that the pergola is covered by glasses, allowing the use of this space even on rainy days. The arrangement of the furniture was designed to promote social interaction. Therefore, who is in the pergola comfortable couch is not off the topic of gourmet cuisine neither of outdoor pool area”, she explains.
