Efficient Residence for Mother and Son: Lake House by David Guerra

Showing off all its 340 square meters, the Lake House designed by David Guerra Architecture is located in Minas Gerais, Brazil. The highly inclined terrain on which the residence was built gave the architect the possibility to build a box-like structure with suspended balconies. The inhabitants are a mother and her adult son, so the house must fulfil their needs for privacy and comfort, as well as entertainment. The framed landscape ensured by a great position adds to the value, while the collection of spaces is highly personalized. The son benefits from a bedroom with a separate entrance, located on the lower floor, right next to the games room. The gourmet kitchen is also located on the lower floor, where there are also two additional bedrooms and a service area. A balcony and a deck make the connection to the fresh air and beautiful panoramas. The first floor features the garage, laundry room, living and dining room, balcony, a guest bedroom and the master bedroom. This is a great place to live that offers entertaining and relaxation spaces for its inhabitants and their guests, don’t you think?

    What can I say? To me this is the ultimate in good taste when designing an interior.
    You donĀ“t have to spend billions in rococo furniture heavily upholstered in sumptuous velvets.
    The vintage furniture used here is exquisite.
    Those two yellow armchairs with wooden arms and legs just send me.
    Not to mention the environment… heavenly.

    And about those 340 square meters this house covers… for TWO inhabitants?!
    Wow! if they wanted privacy they certainly will have plenty of it.
    They may never see each other again for the rest of their lives!!
