Casa BF / Humberto Hermeto

Posted by Scott

370345119_bf-05.jpg  1006863892_bf-04.jpg Saw this incredible house by Brazilian architect Humberto Hermeto posted on Notcot today, amazing! I guess the plan is to first save up and buy a bunch of Herman Miller pieces, then build a house like this around them. Though aesthetically pleasing, I often wonder if would actually be fun to live in a house like this. I have a lot of odds and ends around here, wires hanging out from behind stuff, basically crap everywhere. That probably wouldn’t look very hot next to a stark, modern backdrop like this. But I suppose if you can afford this kind of house you can probably afford some sort of crap organization system, from Design Within Reach. More info and pictures are here

“Though aesthetically pleasing, I often wonder if would actually be fun to live in a house like this”
I think it most certainly would!
I saw this on notcot today, truly amazing.
My family’s very lucky to have a new house, designed by Will Bruder, almost built(after almost 2 years in the works) and basically if the house is designed well it should be rather easy to keep it organized if you can have some self discipline. But I think if you lived in a house as beautiful as this organization would almost feel like a duty to the house hahaha.

I agree with Andrew because it is true that when you really like your place you do want it to look perfect, but i must also say that if it is in your dna to be messy or not really minimalist it won’t be too easy to keep that “aesthetically pleasing” sensation goin on.

This building is close to my city. Undoubtedly a unique architecture … I think almost everyone wanted a house like this.
