Brazilian architecture bringing the outdoors in...

Brazilian architecture bringing the outdoors in... | Going to Brasil | Scoop.it
The owners of this stunning Brazilian abode had as their top design priority the incorporation of a covered outdoor living area.

StudioMK27 architects served their request up in spades, designing the house with a large L-shaped space encompassing the living room, tv room and and an extension of the kitchen, all opening out onto the garden and pool. Sliding doors are cleverly concealed in the walls, giving a sense of complete immersion into the tropical gardens and pool area and enabling the owners to enjoy the fantastic São Paulo climate...

Punch Digital 's curator insight, June 23, 2015 9:48 PM

This Sao Paulo build serves as an inspiration into how far housing designs have come and where they are going. The way in which design focuses on the outdoor and immersing the living rooms onto the outdoor area. 


For a custom home design on your Melbourne property is important that you take inspirations from designs being produced worldwide.


Seeing custom designs like this is what drives our team at Luxury Living Homes to create and deliver on your dream home ideas.

In Pictures: Crackdown in Brazil's favelas

In Pictures: Crackdown in Brazil's favelas | Going to Brasil | Scoop.it
The Brazilian government's 'pacification' initiative has led to drug busts and shootouts in Rio's favelas.

 

Just a few months before Rio de Janeiro welcomes visitors for the World Cup, and two years before it hosts the Olympics, security within the city remains a major issue.  The government currently promotes the policy of "pacification", where security forces engage in raids, drug busts, and even gunfights with suspected gang members. This pacification policy is supposed to pave the way for the development of long-neglected favelas in Rio, Brazil's second-biggest city and home to 11 million people.  However, many of the favelas remain in the hands of an army of drug dealers and criminals who are not willing to step down or be pacified.

Mark Hathaway's curator insight, October 1, 2015 6:29 AM

I believe that absolutely no one is surprised that right before an international event, the hosting city is cracking down on its problem areas. I am skeptical of the Brazilin governments  promise to develop the long neglected Favelas. After Rio finishes hosting the 2016 Summer games, the government will once again neglect the Favelas. There will no longer be an incentive for the government to care about the favelas. The eyes of the world will be off the  city and things can return to normal. The only losers in this equation are the actual residents of these slums. Once again the promise of better days will ripped  from them. An added injury is that there informal economy will have been destroyed. While life in an informal economy is hard by any measure, it is still a way of making a living. The increased police presence will destroy that way of life and replace it with empty promises.

Sipping Agua de Coco and kicking cobblestones in Paraty, Brazil | Adrian Seah

Sipping Agua de Coco and kicking cobblestones in Paraty, Brazil | Adrian Seah | Going to Brasil | Scoop.it


A hop, skip and jump (ok, 4 hour bus ride) from the world famous Rio de Janeiro along the Costa Verde (Green Coast) of Brazil lies the little UNESCO heritage town of Paraty, sometimes spelt Parati, but always pronounced Para-Chee. A little piece of Portugal in tropical Brazil, Paraty was a blast from the past, chock full of old colonial architecture, cobbled streets, horse drawn carriages and old men peddling sweets in carts. A port town, Paraty is decidedly working class, and the simple, almost rough hewn architecture reflects that fact. In the 1800s when gold was still flowing from the mines up in Minas Gerais, Paraty was the port the Portuguese used to ferry the loot out of the country and to imperial coffers in Lisbon. When that gold dried up, Paraty fell in importance and faded into the annals of history, a mass exodus left the town almost empty, but it also meant that the buildings remained preserved in time without too much degradation all these years.


A relatively small town, Paraty can be covered by foot, and we spent few days there wandering about the cobbled lanes an amidst the beautiful buildings with their trademark windows. Late afternoons were spent sipping Agua de Coco on the beach, with Samba blaring from tinny speakers hung up in the trees on the sand. After our crazy time in São Paulo and Rio de Janeiro, it seemed a rather stark contrast that nobody seemed to be in any kind of hurry in Paraty.

And it suited us just fine.
