This house is located in a suburban community in Indaiatuba, in the countryside of São Paulo, in a plain and visually protected site. In order to meet the programmatic requirements of the house and considering the environmental and spatial context as well as the economic situation of the client, the project proposes a modular and simple construction system. However, in contrast to common modular configurations, this one intends to break away from the usual linearity between indoor and outdoor spaces, creating transitional spaces that establish closer ties with the surrounding landscape.
Respecting the natural configuration of the site, an organizational scheme is proposed in which the bedrooms, kitchen, services and garage are annexed to the main structural space of the living room, leaving open interstitial spaces in between through which nature gets closer. The front façade is composed by exposed or pigmented concrete walls that clearly demarcate the boundaries between inside and outside, assuring the privacy of the residents. The rustic and contemporary materials adopted are aesthetically pleasing and bring sensations of warmth and elegance.
