om ouse

OM House was designed by Studio Guilherme Torres and is located in Londrina, Brazil. For us, this home is a great example of minimalist architecture, achieved while respecting the exigency of modern design. The compact exterior resembles a “contemporary fortress”, charming due to its simplicity.Here is more on the material used to build this home: “The project uses few coating materials, which can be easily found in the region. The rusty texture on the brick walls was done directly on the plaster. The house floors as well as some walls are a mix of cement planks and wood rulers. The French windows in the bedrooms were built in wood by local handicraftsmen, a more economical and sustainable alternative rather than the use of synthetic materials.” The interiors are truly astonishing, featuring large windows, contemporary furniture, tasteful contrasting colors and delightful art works.
