One of the client's requirements was to have an integrated gym with sauna, and a massage room overlooking the garden, pool and landscape, according to Architect Márton Gyuricza.
The house is located in the interior of São Paulo state, with a hot summer climate and mild winter weather. The condominium is in a region of much vegetation, with large areas of preservation. Based on these characteristics, the landscape designer Gilberto Elkis, proposed a project that encompasses a very large diversity of native species of the region. Landscaping has the function of integrating the home with the external environment, bringing thermal comfort and preserving the privacy of the family.
