This house was concepted for a modern lifestyle, with spatial integration and spaciousness emphasis, for great family interaction and full space usage, always favoring the union between interior and exterior.
The contrast between dark and light was explored at maximum, through a meticulous definition of finishing materials.
Concrete and metallic structure were combined in order to achive daring open spaces and aesthetic uniformity.
UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
The project was developed from a large internal garden and one ray swimming pool, integrated to the house blocks through glass slippery panels, providing interior light and union between interior and exterior.
Few walls, larger open spaces and a lot of transparency, straight lines and texture variation were the main design directives.
OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
The philosophy of the essential applied to architecture brought greater value to the spaces. The integrated ambients promoted intense interaction and coexistence between individuals. Those were the keys for the success of this project.
PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
The conception of this project took six months and its constrution around two years. It was exhibited in Bienal Internacional de Arquitetura e Design Sao Paulo, Brazil.
FITS BEST INTO CATEGORY:
Architecture, Building and Structure Design
PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
The definition of finishing materials was meticulously estudied, working with plain white walls, natural brazilian stones like Black Slate and Travertin marble, ebony wood and, to contrast with, internal light floor wood end external Itauba floor wood.
The absence of doorspots at pivot doors and glass walls promotes wide ambiences, emphasizing the open house design.
The Living Room space works as a big covered terrace, with a gas fireplace embedded in a longitudinal niche, all coated in steel plates.
SPECIFICATIONS / TECHNICAL PROPERTIES:
Located in a residencial neighborhood in Sao Paulo City, Brazil, this one thousand square meters house project, was developed creating distinct blocks, according to their functions as living, services and bedrooms, acomodated in three diferent levels.
Modern, Minimalism, Spatial Integration, Open Spaces, Transparency
A research and technical adjustments were made for the construction of the gas fireplace, designed with three meters in length. The result was a simple, practical and efficient system that provides regular and sufficient heat to the two hundred square meter environment, completely safe and with minimum gas discharge.
One of the challenges was to apply the City Hall laws to this narrow site and get a good design. Also, as being a city house in Sao Paulo, we had to prioritize its security, developing the project to the inside with no openings to the street and implanting and designing special security systems.
