It’s always fun to see the homes that architects design for themselves. Brazilian architect Arthur Casas did just that with his home in São Paulo, Brazil. Stretching out on an impressive 4,300 square feet, with the stunning landscape right at the doorstep, the home is decked out with cumaru wood paneling that runs from floor to ceiling where it stands out against the stark white walls - offering warmth, and blends in with the beautiful surroundings.

To an architect, one of the defining features of the overall design of a structure is effective interior spatial division. In his own house, Casas successfully divided the ground floor into distinct public and private areas. The kitchen and service area - including a separate bedroom and bathroom - were placed in the north cube structure. A studio and a guest bedroom and bathroom are located on the opposite side. The entire space is connected by the vast living room flanked by wood terraces on both ends.
