David Guerra Architecture And Interior designed the original looking Casa do Sol, a residential project especially envisioned for a couple with two children and grandchildren. The house rests on a lot in the Condomínio Villa Castella, Belo Horizonte, Brazil. Showcasing a diverse exterior design, different from every standpoint, the residence partially opens up towards the backyard, where glass windows and a large terrace create a good connection to the outdoors. The interiors are modern, yet inspire warmth due to the extensive use of wood. The core of the residence is a generous living and dining area, with plenty of room for the entire family and guests. Everything about this massive home inspires space, including the elegant bedrooms and bathrooms. The decorative elements showcased below may prove to be inspiring also- have a look and tell us what you think!
Value for money is not, and never was, the same as being cheap. Value for money means making the most of whatever budget is available. A good example of this is Hayes Primary School in London, by Hayhurst and Co. Having to contend with a tightly controlled 3 million local authority budget, they worked with the existing structure of the primary school to give it a much needed update. A striking polished stainless steel brise-soleil facade installed at the school’s entrance, gives the school’s many different buildings a sense of identity, while new classrooms have been created in a range of shapes and sizes, and are often flooded with natural light
Inside the school, a wall made of cross-laminated timber separates classrooms from the main corridor, providing a space for storage and study. With very little to work with, the architects have managed to create a building that is much more than just the sum of all of its parts
