As you probably know, Greenery is Pantone’s Color of the Year. This means that interior designers, fashion designers, and architects can’t quite get enough of it, so they are using it everywhere. One of the reasons why this color is such an easy one to use is because it is pretty much anywhere! Nature is everywhere, and Greenery is evidently nature’s color, which comes to inspire interior designers every day. The house that we’re about to show is an incredible example of that inspiration. A detail that has particularly caught our eye in this one were the contemporary lighting designs in it.
AMZ Arquitetos designed a home in São Paulo that expands onto a verdant lawn, while a series of planted spaces open to the sky continue the greenery through the property. The architects organized the floor plan of the residence around courtyards throughout the home, helping to brighten the residence and group similar spaces together.
A pool along the southwest wall and an adjacent lawn make up the west enclosure.The firm constructed an L-shaped terrace that wraps around the two interior-facing sides of the courtyard.
A study borders the south corner of the lawn. A TV room, a lounge, and a dining room along the northwest edge of the enclosure follow in counter-clockwise fashion.
GET THE LOOK
Herbie floor lamp is a minimalist lighting design, which would look stunning if you would want to recreate the simple but chic look depicted above.
Floor-to-ceiling glass planes offer views of the courtyard from each of the rooms. The glazing can slide into adjacent walls to connect these spaces through the open patio.
A door to the right of the entrance leads to the living quarters encompassing the northeast section of the home. A square garden illuminated by a skylight sits opposite the threshold. It leaves a lane of space along the outer wall that serves as a hallway into the dining room.
An interior hallway connects the rooms of the living quarters together. A door at the west corner of the passage leads back to the entrance. Past the dining room, a staircase ascends to a second-storey volume, where a small gym and service rooms are situated. A terrace extends out from the cuboid onto the roof, wrapping around the skylight of the lobby.
