An Elegant Take On Brazilian Housing

Based in São Paulo, Brazilian architect Felipe Hess is recognized for his simple yet sophisticated aesthetics. For the project ‘Casa Sumaré’, he undertook a major renovation of an old house, filling it with light and refined design pieces.

“The final construction looks like a small contemporary village.”Composed of three volumes, the new building brings a fresh, modern look to the pitched-roof houses, characteristic of the neighbourhood in which it’s located. “The final construction looks like a small contemporary village,” describes Hess. Commissioned by a young couple with two small children, the residence gently opens to a tropical garden, offering a comfortable connection with the exterior. Blending with the greenery from the outside, ‘Casa Sumaré’ provides a comfortable and inspiring space for its residents to socialize with friends or simply spend time together as a family.
