Nova Lima House in Brazil
The concept of this project has the purpose of sheltering and exposing a considerable collection of contemporary art. The house is outlined by valleys and blue mountains of Minas Gerais. The choice of materials and finishes aimed at simplicity and plainness, characteristics important to the owner, couple seeking to avoid interference to the exhibition of works and architectural tracing, tracing this with prospects already very well demarcated by the apparent color of the metallic structure of iron ore, beside this region is a large mining site. To evade interference was chosen the burnt cement floor, and the white walls with special paint and cleaned, including baths and kitchen, do not have coatings. The definition of the furniture was guided by the same concept so that at no time does not compete with the work, but at the same time mimetizasse the cement floor burned. The pieces were chosen by the sobriety and elegance of color and design, following the coherence that has guided the entire project.
