The lines of this house, constructed in an extremely soak plot in São Paulo – bring out the pragmatist structural planning of Mies van der Rohe. He is known, among others, for the German structure fabricated in Barcelona to have the 1929 World Exhibition, which is still open at the foot of Montjuïc.


Here, as there, it is about basic geometry. The same combination progressive, in light of broad utilization of glass. The same yearning for changeless blending with the scene and feeling near the water. Notwithstanding an unequivocal connection to the materials that are viewed as vital in construction modeling’s vocabulary: concrete and steel.


Remembering the separation of very nearly a century, it is not amazing that the predominant subject that joins the two structures is straightforwardness. The thought of opening up the house to its encompassing space to better catch the light and make breathtaking perspectives for the inhabitants from distinctive perspectives.


“Working at the cutoff between most extreme straightforwardness and the perfect level of security for every space was my most prominent test”, says São Paulo-based planner Fernanda Marques, who composed the configuration. “There was likewise a need to embed the house in the plot, preserve and regard the current trees, and, clearly, the extensive steepness to consider”, she includes.


Once the rooms were laid out, on the other hand, all the rest, as indicated by Fernanda, was a matter of articulating the spaces well around the key components. “At the passageway, for occasion, is a water reflect that floods by the passage steps. The yellow divider that transverses the entire building houses the visitor loo, kitchen, storeroom and administration stairs”, she clarifies.


Another point of convergence, the winding staircase, gives access to the mezzanine, where the media room, the wellness room and the gallery, with its chimney, are. The lower floor is the family zone, and contains a den and three suites. Access to the expert suite is by means of a wide foyer, which opens up to the two bathrooms, his and hers – and the stroll in storage room.


The living territory is connected to the lounge area by a coated course region, which coordinates a deck, interminable outskirt swimming-pool and horizontal greenery enclosure. The eating region opens up specifically to the outside. In this way, altogether encased by coated boards, the house is by all accounts submerged in the encompassing scene.


In any case, this does not mean the draftsman forgot a feeling of warmth that is legitimate to a family home. “I picked, for the inside, to make more reflective views, taking into account roundabout lighting, particularly in the lounge room, with its twofold tallness roof – and by utilizing hotter completions, for example, wood. All things considered, a house needs to resemble a home”.
