Text description provided by the architects. This small summer house is located on a farm on the outskirts of Sao Roque, a town about 60km from São Paulo.


Facades Sections OZ House / Andrade Morettin Arquitetos Associados Detalhe + 24

Intended for short stays, the pavilion succinctly solves the program in two bedrooms and a living room with integrated kitchen, organized linearly allowing its openness to the views and the surrounding vegetation.

The house is built with exposed concrete and a modular wooden structure. The roof and facade cladding is made of metal tiles and a polystyrene filling for thermal protection.

The south façade, made entirely of glass, opens all interior areas to the view and extends them beyond the shell of metal tile with a large wooden roof.

On the north side, near the hill, the volume is enclosed by polycarbonate panels and high frames to protect from the sun.
