Casa Nova Lima: Unusual residence nestled in a carpet of green

Architect Danilo Matoso seems to have used all his craft, designing prowess and imagination when he built the Casa Nova Lima. Located in the vivacious valleys of Minas Gerias, Brazil, the home stands on an uneven terrain and to make up for this flaw, the architect came up with a very “odd” design that helps it stand using a proper weight distribution system. With not much hustle and bustle to cause disturbance to once privacy, Danilo employed broad use of glass to create both ambient and natural lighting. With spacious interiors clad in wood and lovely green wilderness all around, Casa Nova Lima looks like a natural extension of the world that surrounds it! – via
