Most people think living in a concrete house would be cold and unwelcoming. I think that can be true depending on the climate. If it was a home with lots of glass nestled in the hills of Rio de Janeiro (as opposed to nestled within snow in the middle of a Canadian winter for example), like this home, I think it would be wonderful. This is home on weekends to designer Alessandra Clark, her husband Nuno Franco de Sousa (both of Mameluca Studio) and their daughter. With mountains and trees seen through all the windows, rustic wood furnishings, I think this is far from cold. Via Casa Vogue Brazil. Photos: Fran Parente.
