Gamma Issa – Modern Casa of Book Lover

August 27, 2010 Luxury Modern Homes

Gamma Issa is a modern casa in Sau Paulo, Brazil. Thanks to the climate it is very open, the transition between pool and house is almost transparent. Big sliding windows which serve as one wall of the house helps a lot with that. The exterior is painted in milky white so during the day the house is very shiny. The interior has a lot white objects too but its main feature is very big bookcases which occupy one wall on both floors. From the first sight it’s obviously that the owner is real book lover even though not all bookcases are full of books.
