CASA08 by Live Incorporadora
Live Incorporadora has designed the CASA08 in Xangi-La, a small seaside town in Brazil. This is a compact contemporary dwelling with just under 2,000 square feet of minimalist living spaces across two levels. The home features exposed concrete as part of its design for the lower level in combination with wood that gives it a lively look.
Expanding the architectural references of the small seaside town of Xangri-la, RS, CASA08 brings the illuminated freshness of the union between geometry and transparency. Modernism that challenges the perspective, with blocks that distribute the 175sqm of construction in a challenging design that supports all the volume of the work in only two cubes.
On the first floor, a large block of apparent ripped super rustic concrete contrasts with large glass cloths. On the front facade the large wooden soleise brise the privacy of the family and conveys a little warmth to the building. In the back, the large translucent spans guarantee an interactive and versatile space to the exterior areas of the house and the entrance of natural light.
In addition to the extensive garden area, CASA08 has a generous dining room with barbecue and a large fireplace for the couple to enjoy the cold winter days. Living areas and gourmet kitchen are fully integrated into the rest of this floor. In the second floor the master suite and 2 more suites guarantee warmth to the rest of the family and friends
