Instant Attraction: Isay Weinfeld São Paulo Villa

This villa in São Paulo, designed by Isay Weinfeld, was featured in Architectural Digest Nov 2011 issue.  Photos by Ngoc Minh Ngo.

I love how the architect seems to have excavated out many of the spaces in this project: the stone niche in the living room, the sunken library/sitting area, the staircase, and even the view from the exterior into the dining room gived the impression that the room was dug out of a concrete block.  The use of natural materials and the strip/slat like quality of those materials is also very nice.
