lb+mr plans luxury brazilian residence as a refuge from daily urban life

with a design that seeks to connect residents to nature, lb+mr has realized ‘LLP house’ on a site outside são carlos in brazil. spanning 771.82 sqm, the palatial four-bedroom home is built over two levels and it features a large indoor-outdoor social area and an idyllic curved swimming pool.

LLP house is positioned on an elevated site that offers both privacy and views. when developing the design, lb+mr‘s main goal was to integrate the building into the natural surroundings and create a refuge from daily urban life. to achieve this, the team shaped the residence with a ‘beachside house’ in mind; they incorporated large openings, formed outdoor living spaces and used regional materials such as stone, wood and straw.

residents enter the house from the street elevation via a set of stairs from the underground level. this smaller underground floor contains a garage, storage, and service functions. the rest of the program is housed on the first floor, where a large living room serves as the heart of the home. this central point connects to an indoor-outdoor ‘gourmet area’ by glass and wooden doors that can be retracted behind slatted panels made from freijó wood, a traditional element found in brazilian architecture that generates a warm, natural aesthetic.

the indoor-outdoor gourmet area contains a second kitchen, dining and living space that extends outside to a swimming pool. the pool is curved to create a satisfying contrast with the rest of the straight-edged architecture. with an infinite edge, covered in hijau stone, the swimming pool sinks into the landscaping like a natural lake. additionally, there’s also a sauna/spa that connects to the master bedroom suite and the pool through a submerged passage. in LLP house, residents can find plenty of relaxation both inside and outside.
