Designed by ’s StudioMK27 the home is pretty much a perfect template for anyone who wishes to build a contemporary house that is both sophisticated and yet an absolute dream to live in. The Ipês house looks like a giant concrete block floating over a dreamy glass base and this is achieved by the balanced use of concrete wood and glass on the exterior while the interiors remain spacious and light.
The eventual design of the home is a beautiful amalgamation of both well-defined lines borrowed from modern design merged with sporadic and stylish use of wood to create a minimalistic and spacious house. Glass and concrete have been used extensively and the shades have been largely kept neutral with white being the predominant color of choice. Wood has been cleverly used to form the frame of the floor-to-ceiling glass windows to provide a sense of balance.
This also promises plenty of natural light and freshness brought in by each new dawn and with a grand patio and refreshing pool there are plenty options to kick back and relax after a long day’s work. The high ceiling with a striking design not only gives the interiors a spacious look but also offers the home a regal touch.

Polynesian islanders spent several centuries in almost total isolation with little to no connection with surrounding mainland countries. Because of this much of the interior and exterior décor of the South Pacific is composed of all natural materials such as sandalwood rosewood or mahogany – lumber which comes from trees native to these islands. Furniture or décor made with these exotic woods or woods finished in colors similar to these woods will help create a tropical feel.
