The house’s idea has an in number impact of national and worldwide aesthetic developments, for example, the advanced structural engineering and Bauhaus. I trust that building design is the consequence of a scholastic reflection on genuine needs that makes potential outcomes as indicated by the way of life, environment, and so on..

mir_foto_17The living arrangement’s task originated from an essential reason: greatest utilization of area for a tremendous project. Accordingly, the procedure was to find particular zones and vertical dissemination in a manner that whatever remains of spaces appreciate great adaptability and a wide visual extent, benefitting the structure and volume.
mir_foto_1A holder lays on two “bars” and emerges in access and employments of their quick environment. The kaleidoscopic volume contains the living arrangement’s project on two stories in addition to a rooftop garden.


This move gave by two metal bars permits the carport’s floor to spread to the greatest limit of the site. Most extreme inhabitance without influencing ventilation and lighting ensured precisely by that range.



The significant center in the making of social ranges was the mix between them. Through consistent get-together of companions and exceptional social flow of the proprietors, the spaces have their points of confinement weakened. The interface between the kitchen, patio and lounge area obscure the fringes for an extensive regular zone. There are numerous potential outcomes.





Sculptural components rise up out of rooftop to disturb the request. The smooth bend created by the water’s volume tank and the copper triangle loft access contrast fit as a fiddle.





The house is situated in the amazing north of the city of Sao Paulo, Brazil. In spite of being the principle financial center point of the nation, this piece of town still has protected a sure rustic scene and an exceptional contact with tropical nature. It’s beside “Horto Florestal” park. The recreation center can be appreciated from the upper room like a “belvedere” to environment.




During the time spent development of the house, no change was required in connection to the first outline in light of the fact that it was composed inside of the benchmarks and urbanistic arranging laws. The base misfortunes, the inhabitance rate, tallness, rooftop garden and the half underground carport proposed are as per relevant laws in the region.




The holder openings are to a great degree adaptable in the front and back veneers, while very shaky as an afterthought exteriors. This is an immediate result of the prompt surroundings reacting the regular routine of the neighbors doing their developments on the outskirt of their private grounds. As a result of this, the project is situated in the edge side giving a more adaptable inside space and visual correspondence in stature trough the focal point of the house.




Since the house is situated in a private zone with to a great degree strict standards, the house collaborates with the neighbors in extents, on the grounds that it fits around in width and tallness. The venture has improved two previous surroundings: normal incline and nearness to a characteristic park. The unearthing of 1.5 meters permitted the half’s development covered carport, permitting some coherence with the characteristic territory (in a cross-area is conceivable to notice this) and the rooftop’s utilization patio nursery like an observatory to the recreation center by the undertaking.






Two tremendous projections coordinated to the front and back exteriors underscore the compositional principle thought which is to bolster a solid block in two metal pillars. Understanding this as the essential compositional thought for this task, we take note of a crevice between the storm cellar and the cube.Besides supporting the primary volume of the house with visual gentility, this hole conveys the light and air to the cellar. The shadow from outside interprets into light in within.

The shadow from outside deciphers into light in within.




The structure is the hero in the origination. Gets to through this hole were dispersed as autonomous components of the geometry of the house.The space made inside, truth be told, is the thing that remaining parts subsequent to including three little “boxes” with projects. Rationalization reliance between home theater, kitchen and stairway is built up in the living arrangement and separates a region, as seen delineated in the portrayal alongside this content.

mir_foto_15The house was planned by a progression of free level sections with vital openings. In these 8×11 meters arranges, these gaps permit vertical dissemination and the passage of regular light that enters in the space and give a wonderful inside space.The availability is made by little stairs like extensions trough the hole between the establishment and the solid cube.All openings can be driven. This makes the undertaking be shielded against any undesirable interruption from outside.
mir_foto_16Vertical associationInterfacing the house start to finish, the right divider beside the staircase inside the house offers vertical associations with the trading of liquids between the four tallness levels, while giving space to an alternate occasion in each. On the carport floor, unrivaled and top porch, it creates the studio, office and backing separately, while in the principle floor a vast aquarium turns that divider into a crystal.

mir_foto_19Innovation and techniques

A specific test in the venture was benefitting as much as possible from the blended structure (metal and cement). The association between them was precisely composed in light of the fact that every one answers contrastingly to the same basic interest.



Materials decision was made in capacity of the reaction that each of them provides for a particular need. The expansive cantilever proposed the utilization of strong sections. The move between the house and the storm cellar recommended the two’s utilization enormous metal shafts. (Bear the same burden as the solid bars with half basic stature) with fortifications in a few focuses to maintain a strategic distance from the breakdown.

The littler dark metal shafts used to complete the chunk between the ground and upper floors, are utilized as a backing for the slide window in the front façade, and in addition a backing for the board between rooms in the back veneer.

Eco-accommodating measures

Rooftop garden . Other than being a perspective to the city, the rooftop greenery enclosure adds to the living arrangement’s maintainability on the grounds that it invigorates the territory quickly underneath, the dormitories.

Water Heating that serves the house is finished by sunlight based vitality. Boards retain daylight and proselyte that vitality into warmth that is exchanged to water. A supply situated on the rooftop contains the heated water that is circulated to each house through funnels.

The characteristic light is copious in space by the key openings on all veneers and rooftop that permit light to attack the inside space. There is no fake light need amid the day.

Characteristic light enters alongside the water tank, goes through the upper floor and achieve the social floor. This adds to the maintainability of development in light of the fact that it spares power.
