Casa Itu by Studio Arthur Casas

Located an hour outside of São Paulo, Brazil, Casa Itu is a home designed by esteemed architecture firm Studio Arthur Casas that takes maximum advantage of it’s location and environment. The floor plan of the house forms an L shape with the main bulk of the house containing the children’s room on the ground floor, a courtyard next to the home theatre which forms an intimate dining area, a large living room opens onto the terrace and garden which blurs the lines dividing the inside from the outside.

The house is characterised by it’s horizontality and fluidity between spaces, a low-ceiling guides the viewers gaze to the outdoor landscape, the living room windows slide open and tuck away within the walls and the wood panel floors merge the outdoor terrace with the indoors.

Take a closer look at the house in the video below.
