DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
Brise House

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Residential House

INSPIRATION:
When the clients bought the house, their wish was to have as much insolation as possible in the exterior area. This, together with the fact that the house is located in a noisy area, was the inspiration to turn the whole house to itself, by creating a central courtyard. The main facade, in an attempt to filter sound and give more privacy to the users, was contemplated with movable shutters that, not only have the functional purposes aforementioned, but also become a texture for the exterior.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
For the interior design, the project was born from the need of having wide living areas connected to the leisure area, so the clients could host parties and gatherings. Another request from the client was to provide the highest amount of external area with sun, minimizing the incidence of shadows in the swimming pool, which in the end, had great influence in the final look of the architecture itself.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
The house was originally composed by two separate buildings. Only one main block was created, with living area on the ground floor, private areas on the second floor, all directed to the interior courtyard, where the swimming pool and a living room were located. There was also a huge concern in keeping the original features of the house, like the stairs, for example, that had its original structure kept and was updated to contemporaneity through the materials and the new rail made of iron.

PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
The project had a total duration of one year, and is located in Rio de Janeiro.

FITS BEST INTO CATEGORY:
Interior Space and Exhibition Design

PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
The materials used were always defined having in mind that architecture is not for seasons and that the rooms should be as lit up as possible. Therefore, the travertine marble was chosen for the living floor, swimming pool courtyard and toilets; wood for the private areas and pasinato floor for the external areas. Shutters are in fiberglass, windows in white aluminum, canopy and doors in aluminum coated with corten steel paint; doors and panels in freijo wood; and swimming pool in Batu Hijau.

SPECIFICATIONS / TECHNICAL PROPERTIES:
The 1245 sq meters house, in a 1160 sq meters site's area.

TAGS:
house, design, nature, brazil

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
The site and the client are always prompting a unique design. The materials, techniques, aesthetics and dimensions are thought to fulfill one client specific needs, inside one specific environment. Frequent visits to art fairs builds reference for colors, textures, volumes and concepts for the projects. While the nonstop architecture research maintains the projects in a contemporary standard in a global scale, yet not leaving behind the particularities of each site, client and project.

CHALLENGE:
Since it was a renovation, some surprises were found in the process, like unleveled slabs and low beams. In order not to lose height, we took advantage of the existing beams and new ones were created, highlighted by a special lighting design, what made possible a comfortable integration of the living spaces.
