DLW House 1 Diverse Modern Architecture Originally Adapted to a Steep Site

DLW House was designed by design studio Westphal & Kosciuk Architects and is located in Florianópolis, Brazil. Perfectly adapted to its inclined terrain, the residence features overlapping volumes of contrasting colors, with an intriguing visual effect: “Situated on a steep terrain, the owners of the contemporary Brazilian house wanted to have a dwelling where the social and private zones were not isolated from one another. To assure sunlight, cross ventilation and views to the city and the sea, the solution was to lift the living block onto a white cantilever that floats above the driveway. The room is connected to a terrace that privileges the panoramic view“. This particular level accommodates the kitchen, the service area and a workshop with access to the backyard. Upstairs, the master bedroom, guest bedroom and office are located. Two lower sectors host the entrance hall, garage, warehouse and an indoor play quarter. The interior design is highly modern, tastefully spiced up with color here and there. – [ Photography by André Diogo Moecke ]
