Text description provided by the architects. An original and unsual project of approxamately 450 m2, such was the proposal of architects Carolina Sakuno and Fausto Cintra for this residence, belonging to a young family. The volumetry of straight and pure lines pleased the taste of the clients who were longing a comtemporary residence.

The house has two floors and prioritizes architectonics solutions such as large interspaces and swings that bring lightness to the project.  Perpendicular to the volumetry of the house, is found a garage that accomodate 3 vehicules. The edification is located at the terrain’s highest spot, with its gap won by stairs, surrounded by a wonderful tropical landscape, up to the main door.

The lower floor potentializes the integration between the spaces. As soon as one enters the residence by its main door, central pivoting made by wood,  is possible to see the Living Room and the Gourmet Kitchen. An amazing wood stand is located in the living with double function. At its front, TV, wine cellar, equipments and objects of decoration. At its end,  opening shelves harbor the tableware, and when is closed resembles to be a beautiful panel. All of this space opens up, through large running doors which are masked inside the wall, all the way to the pool’s deck. The rear landscaping follows the same tropical lines of the residence front. The contrast stays for the great vertical garden which appears to ‘be born’ out of the pool.

The access stairs to the above storey is hidden behind a wall made of artesanal bricks. The wooden stairs, with withdrawn metallic skirting-board, gained illumination where it shows the path to be tread. The above floor houses the dorms, 4 suits at total. The children suits open up to the recreation area, by large ‘prawn’ doors of Muxarabi wood. The same resource was used in the couple’s room with a street and woods view to the front of the house. The bathroom has the same kind of door, which guarantees a beautiful view to the outdoors, when open. This resource assures ventilation and natural light in the indoors, yet it provides a outstanding quality of privacy. The guests room is inspired by the same idea of permeability/privacy, but now it was used a wall of Cobogós concrete made in front of the window, giving a distinct taste to the lateral edification forefront.
