Glass and steel dwelling in Brazil: Limantos Residence

Limantos Residence-Fernanda Marques-01-1 Kindesign

Limantos Residence is a contemporary glass and steel dwelling designed by architect in the upscale neighborhood of Cidade Jardim (Garden City) in the West Zone of São Paulo, Brazil. The single family residence consists of 8,826 square feet (820 square meters) of living space, spread out over three levels on a steep 8,395 square foot (780 square meters) plot. The house is comprised of 13 rooms: living, dining, kitchen, mezzanine, kids’ playroom, three bedroom suites, powder room, two staff suites, laundry and garage. The family engaged Fernanda Marques to create a home – both the architecture and interior are by Marques – that functions well as an everyday residence for the active family, but also lends itself to frequent entertaining. Marques achieved a beautiful balance between maximum transparency and privacy, and managed to insert the building into a challenging plot while preserving the existing trees. Using glass, steel, and concrete, Marques created a timeless house in the spirit of Mies van der Rohe who was the architect’s inspiration for this project.
