• Design of houses in Brazil with creative green area
The house area of 202 square meters in São José dos Campos, Brazil, built for couples, wants to get the space condusive to a quiet and contemplative life.
Architects Obra Arquitetos studios have tried to solve this problem in two ways.
Firstly, by creating an intimate environment at arm's length by arranging all rooms around a small green patio. This patio allows residents to maintain visual contact with each other, being in different parts of the house. Thanks to the curved glass, frames the living space, views of the patio is not segmented and is perceived as a whole. Secondly, the idea of contemplation architects are turning in large scale natural landscape. The plot is a wide view of the ridge Mantiqueira Mountains. The architects chose to build such a view, which does not fall into the neighboring houses in sight. Therefore, starting with the contemplation of the intimate courtyard garden, you can climb the stairs to the roof Greening and immerse yourself in the eyes endless expanse of mountain. Thus, the house sets the landscape, making the mountains Mantiqueira part of your own garden.
