The landscapes we inhabit shape our experiences and define our sense of place, identity and community. From the rolling hills and forests of rural areas to the towering skyscrapers and bustling streets of urban centres, the landscape around us impacts our daily lives in countless ways.

Minas House, designed by the Brazilian architecture office MK27, is an outstanding project that combines innovation, elegance, and comfort to create a unique living experience for its owner. The house is located in the mountains, in a beautiful landscape that inspired the design and motivated the owner to choose this particular location to build the house.

The owner of the house has shared his experience of living in Minas House in an interview, stating that what he most appreciates about the project is "the privilege of having a view of the mountains or the forest from any corner of the house." This is made possible by the design of the house, which features large windows that provide a panoramic view of the surrounding landscape.

The materials used and the distribution of spaces also play a significant role in the experience of living in Minas House. According to the owner, "I have a feeling of cosiness with elegance. In short, I don't feel like leaving the house." This feeling is created by the use of natural materials such as wood and stone, which create a warm and inviting atmosphere. The distribution of spaces is also carefully designed to provide a comfortable and functional living environment.

Minas House features distinctive and innovative design elements that enhance the living experience of the owner. These elements, according to the owner, "value comfort, elegant design and create harmony with the external landscape." The experience of living in this house is characterized by the appreciation of details and the enjoyment of the atmosphere of the house, as if it were always the first time. The owner also highlights the privilege of watching the four seasons of the year from a cabin, a unique feature of the house that adds to its charm and exclusivity.

Minas House is a remarkable project that reflects the creativity, innovation, and attention to detail of the architecture office MK27. The house provides a unique living experience that combines elegance, comfort, and a close connection with nature. As the owner stated, "I have the privilege of living in a house that is not only beautiful but also functional, comfortable and unique."
