Resplendent Glass Residences

Anastasia Architects is Responsible for This House in Belo Horizonte

Anastasia Architects designed this house in Belo Horizonte, Brazil.

Located in a residential neighborhood, this 370-meter home is allocated over over two levels. The architects sought to integrate the interior and exterior of the home as seamlessly as possible by playing with traditional boundaries and amplifying the space by width. The home is nearly void of transitional or crossing spaces; for instance, the entrance hall was left out for greater visual continuity through the home.

The home features large doors situated in the facade, as well as matted glass locking, which improves the thermal insulation of the home. Glass also covers a concrete pergola. The glass presence throughout the home ensures that the house is flooded with natural light, yet manages to avoid the heat accrued from excessive sunlight.
Trend Themes
1. Glass Architecture - The use of glass in architectural design to create seamless integration between interior and exterior spaces, as well as maximize natural light and thermal insulation.
2. Thermal Insulation Innovation - Advancements in technology and materials to improve thermal insulation in buildings, such as matted glass locking, to enhance energy efficiency and reduce heat loss.
3. Visual Continuity Design - Design strategies that eliminate transitional or crossing spaces in homes, such as excluding entrance halls, to create a visually seamless and flowing living space.
Industry Implications
1. Architecture - Opportunity for architects and designers to leverage glass in innovative ways, integrating interior and exterior spaces while prioritizing thermal insulation and natural light.
2. Construction - The construction industry can explore and adopt new materials and techniques for improved thermal insulation, enhancing energy efficiency and reducing environmental impact.
3. Interior Design - Interior designers can embrace visual continuity design principles to create seamless living spaces that enhance the overall flow and visual appeal of residential and commercial properties.
