Bunker House Design, Private Residence Designed by Thomas Bendel.
This house which looks like some kind of bunker is a private residence designed by Thomas Bendel. It’s made of prefabricated concrete blocks besides its front and back which are done in glass and black anodized aluminum. Behind house entrance is a ten meters long staircase with a steel handrail. The living area is a large space which hides kitchen behind high gloss maple walls with black oak joints. Other walls are made of raw concrete which are in contrast with pure black floors. Through the windows around the house a lot of landscape views are captured. Even the bathroom has such views but couldn’t be viewed from the outside.

Sumaré House Design by Isay Weinfeild Architects, in São Paulo, Brazil

June 04, 2013 By: archinhome Category: Architecture

This Sumaré House is designed by Isay Weinfeild Architects, located in São Paulo, Brazil.
The plot is not a small one (700 m2), but due to construction (height) restriction laws, the building should not exceed 2 floors, and an underground floor was necessary. There, the architects placed the caretaker’s quarters and the office – as both areas open onto small but nice lawns, one does not feel like being underground at all.

On the middle floor, a few steps above street level, there are the sitting and dining rooms, the kitchen and a larger lawn. In the living room, we designed a long étagère so the owner could display her collection, ranging from works of art to design and vintage objects. On the upper floor, there are the bedrooms – hers and a guest’s – and the ‘facilities’ for physical exercising: ballet and swimming.
