Lee House in Porto Feliz, Sao Paulo, Brazil by Studio mk27

Tuesday, May 7th, 2013

Article source: Studio mk27

With the façade radically horizontal, the Lee House is organized in a single volume ground-floor site. All of the rooms therefore, establish a strong relationship with the external, opening out to the garden. The spatial continuity with the living room is larger: all of the windows are recessed creating an extension of the external space, with a large veranda. The living room then prolongs the pool deck and crosses to the other side of the lot.
