Text description provided by the architects. Located in Salto, countryside of Sao Paulo, this is a vacation dwelling for a large family; with a total area of 650m² built on a 2500m² plot.
The program was spread horizontally on the plot, according to suitable views and sun orientation for the rooms, which sizes and position generated the irregular shape of the building.
The interior common spaces (garage, laundry and guest bedrooms excluded), are continuous. The kitchen wall is a large sliding panel that allows the integration to the dining room whenever desirable (as shown in the schematic plan).
Social areas that overlook the valley are all glazed. On the west facade, a wooden vertical brise-soleil was applied in order to protect the living room from the afternoon sun. The bedrooms are protected by sliding louvered doors. In the edges of the house, near the neighbor’s setback limit, blank walls frame the interior views and maintain privacy inside the glazed areas.
