Placed in an old container, Casa Viva Leroy Merlin was designed to show how sustainability can be part of everyday life in different homes across the country.
The spaces offer several sustainable alternatives: arrangements that value natural lighting and ventilation, cisterns to store rainwater, solar heating and even a self-sufficient lighting system for the garden.
And to show that when it comes to sustainability, we are stronger together, the project is a tour by Brazil’s cultural diversity.
Each room was inspired in a region, showing its characteristic colors, shapes and textures.
In the living room, Brazil’s biggest city is represented in an art installation depicting a photo of impressive Sao Paulo skyline. One of the porches gets the atmosphere of Rio de Janeiro, where the patterns of Copacabana’s boardwalk become a charming bench.
In the bedroom, the south of Brazil is represented by the warm fabrics and coatings. In the master bathroom, the use of green references the north region.
On the back porch, many colors and handcrafts made of wood create the festive environment from the northeast.
In the kitchen, the Monte Sião porcelain, the colorful tiles and the picture of a delicate church surrounded by a beautiful blue sky bring to everyone around the hospitality from Minas Gerais.
