Simone Mantovani Baroneza Residence
Baroneza Residence is Silver Design Award winner in 2016 - 2017 Architecture, Building and Structure Design Award Category.
Baroneza Residence

The height, the transparency and the open spaces are the highlights of this weekend house, built on a private property near the city of São Paulo. The integrated spaces and the transparent windows and large sliding glass panels provide an experience of interaction with the gardens and with the exuberant local landscape. The living and dinner area opens out onto terraces, with spaces for resting and socialization. To give more privacy to the glazed interior spaces the main facade was blinded by a natural stone wall that emphasizes the minimalist style of the house.

Simone Mantovani

Simone Mantovani has been working, since she got majored in architecture and urbanism, as partner and creative director at the family business Construtora Mantovani, where she developed many enterprising projects as single residences, apartments, business offices, condominiums and high standard buildings. At the same time produced several interior design projects and furniture design. In 2001, she started up her own new firm, Simone Mantovani Arquitetura, with a whole new profile; aiming the integration of her background experiences on commercial, residencial and institucional architecture with interior design. All her projects are developed on the basis of research into materials and on elaborate construction, always taking into consideration the environments in which they are to come to life. There is no pre-determined script for the architectual incursions which, in general, starts with the overall layout and might terminate, for example, in designing a very special lamp. The client's briefing and the analysis of how he interacts with his environment is the starting point, that will ally experience to the art of spaces creation.
