Situated in Araraquara, Brazil, the FG Residence by Reinach Mendonça Architects is a family home that is both modern yet comfortable in its design. Built using large polished concrete blocks, warm timber and cool steel, the house is separated into cube-like forms. A large double-height foyer opens up to the ground floor living and dining areas, while the upper level houses bedrooms. An indoor ramp with a glass bannister joins the two levels together, keeping the fit-out contemporary. In the rear, an elevated walkway covers the roofed outdoor terrace, which looks out onto the swimming pool and lawn.
