Architecture and interior layered home in Brazil
• Architecture and interior layered home in Brazil
Private house in the city of Bragança Paulista, Brazil, designed by the studio Jacobsen Arquitetura on the highest part of the territory, which creates an opportunity for a wide spacious views of the surrounding landscape, and reduces interference from adjacent buildings.
Social and private areas have been divided between two parallel volumes of the same width, are shifted relative to each other. The connection between them is performed through the junction, which as a bridge crosses the mirror pond separating the two wings of the building.
Volume, located closer to the entrance, consists of a living room connected with dining room and kitchen, TV room and a spa area. These rooms open to a large terrace that provides a magnificent view and protected from the sun in the afternoon through the shed. There is also a swimming pool with solarium. The second volume is located on the rear side of the bed portion and busy hosts and guests. This part of the house facing the sunrise and has a wide covered terrace. The basis of the building became a layered structure made of thin pieces of wood, which allowed architects to achieve a feeling of lightness and almost transparent.
