Guilherme Torres has created a beautiful, modern house in Londrina, Brazil that’s designed to feel intimate enough for a couple, yet have the flexibility to accommodate a large, extended family for the holidays.
Referred to as the OM House, the contemporary house is made of two imposing blocks crossed on the perpendicular, creating living areas that are closely knit yet independent of each other. The subtle use of rich textures and earthy shades used in the modern interior keeps things from becoming too stark and heightens the feeling of comfort.
Studio Guilherme Torres opted out of the tendency to overdose on the bold, sometimes harsh, contrast of black and white and instead integrated plenty of white with deep browns, sandy beiges and lots of exotic wood for a warm and inviting interior.
Oversized windows flood each room with natural light. Striking wood panels slide open to reveal a black lap pool just off the suite of bedrooms, where the OM House residents can unwind.
