Casa do Patio by Leo Romano
Leo Romano has designed the Casa do Patio in Goiania, Brazil as a modern take on a mid-century home design. It is characterized by its clean lines where the exterior is defined by a simple, single-level block facade and the interiors are formed with horizontal levels and planes. Three sides of the building are enclosed in order to provide seclusion and privacy from the street and the neighboring homes while glass sliding doors connect the interior and outdoor spaces.
From the architects: “The design of this residence in Goiania, dates back to modern Brazilian architecture, in which straight lines and simple demarcate the construction party.
From the outside, the play of volumes is necessary. Few plans define the façade that delicately conceals the daily lives of residents. Inside, the house reveals no mysteries, making clear the distribution of sectors and their environments. It all comes back to the courtyard. Thus, visual permeability and usability is complete, providing day to day family living with a heavy, reinforced by the architecture.”
