The FG Residence Looks Like a Converted Resort

The FG Residence is a house in Brazil constructed by Reinach Mendonça Architects. Although the abode is designed as a home for a family, it looks more like a five star resort than a quaint and cozy space for parents and children.

The inside has an open concept, with most rooms being quite wide and falling out onto the pool area on the main floor. To walk up to the second level, a ramp-like area was installed instead of stairs, again making the house look like something from a hotel that's trying to accommodate people both young and old. Mostly concrete material was used for the outside of the house, and the architects went with a blocked, structural look.

Hopefully the family living in the FG Residence constantly feels like they are living in a high-end resort, because it certainly looks like it!
