For architects, the symbiotic relationship between a conceptualized dwelling and its surrounding area should always take precedence. Often times, this means that builders must elaborate, and take an ambitious, naturalistic approach toward the current project — something that Brazil’s Jacobsen Arquitetura has fully realized with its minimalistic MH House.
Perched atop the coastline of Sao Paulo, this mesmerizing home finds a way to blend and coexist, yet somehow also stand apart from Brazil’s lush countryside. Dense foliage, magnificent fauna, and a palette of muted colors provide a stark contrast to the MH House’s magnanimous textures, allowing the dwelling to maintain its balanced composure throughout the seasons. On the exterior, natural woods, granite accents, and charred outliers serve to enhance the abode’s modern design principles, while giving light to its rustic underpinnings. As you peer through the home’s multitudinous windows, views of a large, open-space floor plan continue to enamor — providing denizens with an immersive look into the dwelling’s grandiose kitchen, living, and dining areas.
