Minimalistic House in Iporanga by Arthur Casas

Minimalistic House in Iporanga by Arthur Casas

This house is called simply “House in Iporanga” and it was made by Arthur Casas, and is a beautiful example of minimalistic design. “I always wanted a house in the middle of the forest, in a place where I could relax and recharge my energy”, says Arthur. In the form of two large symmetrical cubes embracing an open space, this house was idealised as his dream house. Arthur’s aim was interiors in total synergy with exteriors. Bringing the outside in are 11 meter floor to ceiling glass windows, on both ends of the open central space. Cumaru wood paneling runs from top to bottom in an attempt to match and blend in with is beautiful surroundings. – Via

    What an inspiring place to live! The floating fireplace really caught my eye.

    Gorgeous use of space and light, in total harmony with the vegetation outside. Okay, I’m ready to move in now.

    Such a lovely place to live.
    I’d totally move in there.. Until I had children
    that is. Doesn’t seem children friendly.

    That is the house, I would like to live in… That’s living in the
    house, but in meantime in the nature.

    Wonderful. I love it

    Beautiful light and big windows. But otherwise very cold and unwelcoming.

    Sterile, boring, unimaginative, inhuman, vapid,
    mediocre and totally unacceptable as a living space.
    A wonderful example of tastelessness coupled with
    lots of money. wowee zowee. In another age, this ‘designer’
    would be winnowing wheat. ugh!

    I’ve seen a house like this, with the sliding
    window-wall and open-spacious feel and generous use
    of interior wood, in Los Altos, California, USA.

    Same designer?

    Certainly not at a minimalistic price…

    I am in love with the outdoor area. If I had a deck like that, I would just camp outside.

    an awesome house, but… where the F is all their stuff? anybody
    that does’nt have stuff can’t afford it. or i guess, it’s their
    weekend home in the summer. so only in about 6 days a year.

    one of the main things i wouldn’t like about living in this house is that it’s such an easy target for armed robbery/breaking and entering. nobody would hear or see you…

    […] future homes come in so many shapes and sizes. This one by Arthur Casas is especially drool-worthy. Imagine how much better food would taste when you’re steps from a […]

    it’s not minimalist, it’s just boring. Does anyone live here? I’d hate that life… Don’t get dirt on the floor!

    Really inspiring modern contemporary architecture. I’d just hope it could be economically feasible to set it up in Northern countries as well?
