It has been a while since we’ve presented a modern cantilevered residence on Freshome. The minimalist LP House was envisioned and implemented by Metro Arquitetos Associados and is located in São Paulo, Brazil. Made up of two main volumes, the concrete and steel villa exhibits a functional layout: “The ground floor embraces the architectonical program of the house and is organized by a longilineal volume that incorporates all of the wet areas; two bathrooms, kitchen and laundry room. This main volume stretches along the whole extension of the house, parallel to the lateral border and demarcating the end and initial point of the terrain.”

The architects further explain that the flooring is elevated 45cm above the ground level, allowing the front of the house to be used as a comfortable seating area facing the garden. A stairway located outside of the main interiors allows easy access between floors, without the need for going inside the house. Concrete walls and flooring give the place a sober feel and redirect attention towards the fresh landscape outdoors. How would you comment on the overall design of this home in Brazil?
