What modern architecture concerns South America has been steadily gaining momentum. Brazilian architects in particular have earned the fame with their designs around the continent. One of them is the Brazilian architect Guilherme Torres who designed also this building – the AS House. It is located in the small city of Cornélio Procópio in the south of Brazil on a gently sloping terrain. The walls are 25 feet high and the house is 6 460 square feet large. The two-story rectangular home features 4 bedroom suites, offices and a TV lounge on the street level and entertaining spaces on the basement floor. Artificial lighting is installed throughout the house to compensate for the lack of natural light mostly on the lower floor. The common areas are plastered in white cement which contrasts with dark wooden furniture. An interesting element of the house is the exposed patio with palm trees surrounding the swimming pool.
