Text description equipped through the architects. The place of dwelling was once constructed on a flat plot of 500m2, 10m x 50m, of a condo with perspectives to a Golf Course situated within the town of Itu, 100km from the Capital of São Paulo. The housing program was once dispensed in 2 unbiased blocks whose tectonics determine every sector of the home in line with its makes use of. The architectural expression comes from the duality between those volumes which are repeatedly similar; one opposing every different, from time to time integrating their spatialities.
When we get right of entry to the development through the axis that defines the doorway of the home – a vertical component that concentrates the corridor, steel stairs and the water field within the quilt – we realize that we’re in an interstitial area that makes the transition between the 2 sectors of the home. The first is one this is organized in a linear model and built-in environments for coexistence and recreational.
It is a pavilion deployed at the flooring flooring that is going from the small entrance lawn that delimits the refuge of the automobiles, via dwelling rooms, eating, balcony and in spite of everything the pool solarium situated behind the lot. Light metal components sealed through in depth cristal panels advertise consistent discussion with the encircling spaces and panorama. The low top area forces the perspectives to the horizon and the continual planes of flooring and lining intensify this feeling of continuity. Being “within” or “out of doors” is a virtually imperceptible situation.
Contrasting the primary sector there’s a 2d block that gifts in a “heavy” and with opaque surfaces. A two-story composition containing the carrier and kitchen spaces at the flooring flooring and the bedrooms at the higher flooring which are accessed through the sunshine metal staircase suspended through tie rods. They have subdivided areas, with managed openings, that give the sensation of privateness and compression of the inner areas.
Although a monochromatic construction, the undertaking “performs” with the differences of white textures; the roughness of the scraped mass of partitions, brightness of the steel plates and components, the ceramic blocks of the auto shelters, the colorless laminated glass and the swimming pool replicate supply other perceptions of lighting fixtures, reflections and refractions, steady shadows and laced, which provide nice dynamism to the composition.
