Brazilian Home Designed Around Antique Car Collection

This is serious dream house goals.

Most car enthusiasts can only fantasize about building a dream house designed around an entire car collection. Many car enthusiasts don’t have enough cars to call it a collection, and others don’t even have a garage to store their one and only pride and joy.

A couple recently had sauermartins architectural studio build a single-story urban home tucked away in the lush, mountainous landscape of Canela, Brazil. The owner’s one main requirement was for the home to feature a large garage capable of harboring their treasured antique car collection. The lineal opening to the front of the garage allows for partial views of the antique cars that can be viewed from inside the residential area.

The home, called Casa de lata, sits on a natural site with enchanting natural views all around. Inside the home is a courtyard complete with an inner garden that flows to the outside landscape with preserved trees.

Appearing as a closed and austere block, the home’s exterior was built to connect with the surrounding scenery with its dark wood aesthetic. The interior of the house is not as dark with transparent facades revealing wide windows that flood the dwelling with natural light. Made of wood, metal, and glass, the house sits on a concrete slab and is divided by three sectors. The two main sectors, equal in size, are for the house and garage. The third area is for the private patio and barbecue area among other things.

Sadly, details of said car collection are unknown, but we can see a few of the cars in one of the photos such as an old-school Volkswagen bus. This couple certainly has the right idea when it comes to a beautiful home with majestic scenery surrounded by nature and can house a plethora of antique vehicles. It looks like finding those winning lottery numbers may be the only way for the lot of us, but we can keep dreaming, right?
