For a lot of home owners, the pool is the centerpiece. It’s where friends and family congregate, it’s where the most intense home workouts take place, and it’s the primary venue for playing with the kids. In this Brazilian Duplex designed by Architect Fernanda Marques, the pools is also a centerpiece – but in a much different way.

Commissioned by a São Paulo-based art collector, the pool sits prominently on one side of the living room – exposed by two large windows. The center of the space is occupied by a double couch, leaving plenty of room for the instillation of purchased sculptures and entertaining. The rest of the home features a similarly minimalist feel, an intentional approach taken to accomodate the client’s art collection. The master bedroom sits in the mezzanine above the living (though it can be closed off via a sliding partition) and has direct access to the pool. The walls around the pool are covered in lush plants that give the home a naturalistic, and private feel. It’s as if the pool itself is a functional part of the owner’s private gallery.
