Shade Play

Collectors Refuge by mf+arquitetos

If light is one of the most precious gifts from nature, our ability to control light must be one of our greatest achievements.  As this beautifully serene house in the Franco area of Sao Paulo shows, the interplay of light and shade can create the most stunning interiors.

Designed by local architects mf+arquitetos, the petite single-storey structure may be small in size but is definitely high on style.  Natural elements are emphasised with the wooden ceilings, a stunning living green wall and extensive use of wooden lattice screens, which cleverly filters the light, creating beautiful shadows as well as providing privacy.  The use of black and natural stone walls in the kitchen, bathroom and bedroom provides contrast in both texture and colour and serves to highlight the natural elements.  The furniture and decor follows the naturalistic theme and strike a good balance between style and comfort.  This refuge is surely the perfect retreat from the rigours of urban life.
