Homes: Casa Butantã by Paulo Mendes Da Rocha
Casa Butantã by Paulo Mendes Da Rocha
House in Butantã neighborhood of São Paulo, Brazil, which had been the architect’s Paulo Mendes Da Rocha own home. Often the architects of south america took the modern movement to one level more.
The work of Paulo Mendes Da Rocha of is amazing. Yet his brutal use of concrete, heavy and unforgiving, feels natural like it was carved from stone, mixed with natural woods, and surrounded by trees. This example, his own home, feels like a perfect place to feel cool, dark and hidden, to move around unnoticed yet open and fresh.
