Set in sunny Brazil in Vila Castela, Nova Lima, by Brazilian architect Humberto Hermeto was an innovative design back in 2005 when it was completed, and this cool design continues as one of the region’s hottest properties in this high end home stretch. Set on a hill overlooking a vast valley, BF House boasts walls of floor-to-ceiling glass and integrates outdoor living spaces into its light, airy design. A set of stairs leads up to the main part of the home, where a glassed-in open-concept living room is supported by columns and cantilevers out into the breathtaking view. An infinity pool seems to flow right off the edge of the property. Interiors are superbly finished with luxurious details at every turn: gorgeous polished marble floors, contemporary columns holding up the cool, concrete ceiling, a wonderful modern fireplace at the center of it all, and enclosing this amazing space are invisible glass walls that invite the outdoors in.
