From the architect. Located in Camaçari – Bahia – Brazil, the HOUSE CARQUEIJA is about 260,00 sqm in a 1.400,00 sqm site, with a reduced program, and no unused spaces, the house is intended to be more site sensitive, emphasize the outside life, and provide functional and comfortable living spaces. With a simple and efficient plan, it is a ground floor house with 2 rooms, a chapel and a large and flexible social area, which integrate living, dining and tv room in a open space, linked to the outside area through a porch.

The house was horizontally sited into its site, a strong relationship and environmental concerns make the project keep the natural landscape and sloping topography, in a way that the house floats on the spot creating two different levels of occupations. A couple of steps leads to the entrance, from the house a stair connect the green outside area where the swimming pool and the barbecue are placed.

In order to have the best orientation, in a tropical county, the house closes itself from the front street view, which is west, and opens into the backyard, creating a privative and integrated place. That way, on the front facade, architectural elements, as a narrow windows and a pare-soleil was used to protect the house against solar irradiation, while the back facade, on east side, completely integrate the inside with the outside, through large windows, sliding doors and a porch, connecting the house with the green area.

As a result, in a first contact with the house, it seems like a closed box, where you see the volume of the garage and the front entrance. Totally different from the experience of getting in the house and only then, discover the amply space, fully of natural light and the visual connection with the natural landscape.

Essa casa revela uma arquitetura que é puramente volume, um minimalismo claro que enquadra a paisagem e valoriza o entorno. E tira partido da vegetação de um dos lugares mais lindos do mundo que é a Bahia, parabéns a voçês Carlos e Mila que me mostraramm o quanto arquitetura é empolgante!Grande abraço.

Very well done form and well organized plan... All details are clear... just sofas from flower fabric are.... mmm....:)... but entier impression is perfect...

verdier architects · February 07, 2011

I like the use of crisp white inside and outside the home. This style is so desirable residential architects california create modern designs in northern California.
