Text description provided by the architects. This slope urban lot in Mogi das Cruzes, indicated us the following premisses:

Level access to the garage, office and intimate area of ​​the house, a box of apparent concrete houses the vertical circulation and the water resevatory, a vertical volume that counterposes the horizontality of the project 

The rooftop is a garden, solarium and a leisure area.

The upstairs open floor opens to the setbacks and creates the social area, integrated and isolated when necessary. A garden with a “jabuticabeira”tree connects Living room and dining area, the kitchen opens to the bottom terrace integrated with outside kitchen and spa. Full and empty spaces compose the symphony of sensations proposed for this residence.

At the request of the young couple owners we left for a journey full of discoveries as we entered through the reused wooden door. We also reused wood leftovers as expansion joint for the burnt cement floor that goes through the entire residence.

The leaked bricks were used to serve as a sun light filter and strategically placed to direct the wind circulation and avoid the use of air conditioning.

The preserved forest at the back of the lot keeps the temperature mild, creating shady areas and protecting the construction of the direct winds and sunlight.

A technical area is located below the car lot and boxes for reused rain water were installed for  cleaning and garden irrigation.

Besides the accentuated lot gap challenge, the proposal also balances the couple's yearnings with the contemporary need for a sustainable and comfortable home.

A pedido do jovem casal partimos para um percurso cheio de descobertas ao entrarmos pela porta de madeira reutilizada de sobras da obra, reutilizamos também estas madeiras como junta de dilatação para o piso de cimento queimado proposto para toda a residência.
