AHZ House in Brazil: Modern Minimalism Encased in Inviting Ambiance

A contemporary home defined largely by the principles of minimalism need not be a dull and drab affair with a cold, detached look. Many homeowners tend to believe that a lack of color, the bare minimum in terms of décor, and clean, polished surfaces that fashion an impersonal and sterile environment represent minimalism. But putting the style into perspective in an elegant, cozy and refined fashion is the exquisite AHZ House in Londrina, Brazil, designed by ZIZ Arquitetura. This 207-square-meter apartment relies on bright pops of color and ample natural light to infuse life into the contemporary setting.

Kitchen and dining area turns the living space next to them into a comfy family zone

The interior of the home is shaped by a wonderful use of contrasting textures that include bamboo veneer, cement, black lacquered finishes in the kitchen and a hint of stainless steel! This eclectic fusion of diverse materials is done in a sophisticated manner to ensure that none of them seem out of place, as each one adds to the uniqueness of the AHZ House. A welcoming living area with an overdyed rug in purple draws your attention as the kitchen and dining space become an extension of this large ‘family zone’. Comfort and an ambiance that promotes interaction between the family members were the two defining factors that created this Brazilian home.

Modern décor pieces that blend into the backdrop, additions such as the black and white framed photographs that create a lovely gallery wall and smart lighting put the final touches on this posh Londrina house.
