Architecture is more than just designing buildings. It is the art and science of creating spaces that are not only functional but also aesthetically pleasing and emotionally fulfilling. The impact of architecture on its inhabitants is significant and cannot be overlooked. Well-designed architecture can positively impact the lives of its occupants in numerous ways.

Campos House, designed by Roberto Pace, is an example of modernist architecture that seamlessly blends with its natural surroundings. The house is situated in a forested area with a lake, and it is designed to integrate the outside environment with the inside living space. The house's design has left a lasting impact on its dweller's daily life, and they shared their experience with us in an interview.

According to the dweller, living in Campos House is an experience of absolute integration of good architecture and design with nature. Every detail of the house, from waking up to moments of reflection and socializing with family and friends, is a revelation of how the house impacts their day-to-day life. The design of the house contributes significantly to their overall sense of well-being and comfort. The use of potentially cold elements such as concrete and glass is softened by the use of natural stone and wood, creating a cozy and comfortable atmosphere.

The dweller also spoke about some of their favorite details or design elements of the house. They praised the house's special design, which makes the apparent hardness of the concrete offset by its lines, giving the impression of lightness. The triangular swimming pool and reflecting pools also stood out for their design and the choice of materials in a surprising color, which reflect the rich nature that surrounds them.

Campos House has also changed the dweller's relationship with their environment and nature. The house's wide glass doors and few walls allow nature to invade its internal environment, making it feel like a part of the surrounding forest. The house's design has also allowed for a seamless connection between the interior and exterior spaces. The porch offers a stunning view of the interior of the house, with stone walls accommodating fireplaces, and a staircase in Corten steel standing out for its lines.

The house's design has left a lasting impact on its dweller's daily life, creating a comfortable and cozy atmosphere that allows them to connect with their environment and nature.
