Celebrating natural materials like timber, stone, travertine, and granite, ‘Casa Q04L63’ by Brazilian firm MF Arquitetos is a holiday home like no other.

Located in Rifaina, in the Brazilian city of São Paulo, the sculptural home belongs to a family of five who come for weekend retreats and holidays. Embracing modernism, horizontal planes are a trademark of the home—with its timber-lined walls and ceiling, elongated kitchen island bench, and rectilinear swimming pool that is backdropped by a horizontal gray stone wall. The stunning home welcomes the surrounding environment into its fold; through many architectural gestures that bring light, texture, and plant life inside. Its timeless aesthetic was achieved through a material palette that came together seamlessly: flooring made from sandy travertine Egyptian marble, bathroom and countertop surfaces constructed from black slate and rusty granite, and concrete slabs and stones covering the pool area, all held together by beautiful panels of slatted wood. “All these compositions, combined with a simple and functional volumetric, provide an experience of great comfort, welcome, and practicality for everyone who visits the house,” the studio concludes.
