The Casa Grécia by Isay Weinfeld is located on a large corner plot of land with plenty of natural vegetation where an Eco-system of 1,900 square meters of plants exist within the São Paulo home. The only visible portion of the home is a short concrete structure with a vibrant yellow door. A green Ivy plant climbs up the concrete, giving visitors a little insight of the plant life inside.

Brazilian architect Isay Weinfeld has combined nature with architecture and does so throughout the property. For example, areas within the home, where there are large trees that have became preserved by the architecture. At one point  a tree and rocks surrounded by glass windows can be seen reaching though the ceiling.

Another similar moment happens when an entire indoor garden of small palm trees and shrubbery bask in sun under a series of square and rectangular skylights. The inclusion of the plants assist in keeping temperatures cool and creates an authentic feeling throughout the home.

The owner of the home has an antique car collection which was in need of proper display and preservation. In respect to his clients passion, Weinfeld created a pebble driveway which leads to a stark white museum-like garage, where the vintage automobiles are protected and displayed behind tempered crystal clear glass.
