Living Oasis

In a figurative sense, the word oasis refers to an environment that, in the middle of a hostile environment or a sequence of unpleasant situations, can provide pleasure. Based on recently lived global experiences, the design of this space seeks to offer a refuge to its visitors. 

With a wide connection with the surroundings, the living room generates a feeling of delight and tranquility, with space for a small pantry and a reading area. The deck adds an irresistible ingredient: an ecological sauna, all made of glass, installed in the midst of a carefully thought of tropical landscaping.

To ensure freshness, all coatings have been carefully chosen. The floor mixes very light porcelain with wood and demarcates spaces. The technocement texture present on the ceiling, also found on the walls and external façade, confers homogeneity of colors and tones. The spot lighting creates an almost scenic ambience, that is quite cozy. The cabinets, in the same woody tone as the ceiling and walls, compose and blend into the space. Ceramic pieces and straw baskets emphasize handmade items, which are also present in rugs, made by artisans from the interior of Minas Gerais, in jute and sisal.
