Located in the city of São Paulo, Brazil, the Box House was designed by Flavio Castro of architecture firm FCStudio, for himself to live in.

 

Situated on a corner, the home has a privacy and security wall, that will one day be covered in ivy, while a weathering steel front gate and garage door contrast the concrete.

The large weathering steel gate opens to reveal an entryway with a garden and access to the interior through additional weathering steel pivot doors.

The entryway opens directly into the social areas of the home, like the kitchen. Minimalist, hardware free cabinets have been used to create a minimalist kitchen design, while pockets of open shelves provide a place to display cookbooks or decorative items.

Adjacent to the kitchen is the dining area, that adds a pop of color to the open interior in the form of bright red chairs.

Sliding glass doors that line the dining area and the living room, help to create an indoor / outdoor living environment.

Outside, you can see the second floor of the home, and it appears to almost float above the main floor, when the sliding glass doors are open. Tropical landscaping has been used to soften the concrete privacy walls.

Along one side of the home are floating stairs that lead to the upper level of the home.

On the upper floor of the home is another living room, that takes advantage of the miniwave panels on the exterior of the house, that control sunlight, acoustics and safety.
