6 case study houses

HOUSE #1

Chacara Santa Helena is an oasis in Sao Paulo. A large piece of the Mata Atlantica captured in the midst of the sprawling city. An abundance of trees and species makes a uniquely beautiful and rich site. Our house captures this image; at the heart of the house is nature, the trees of the Mata Atlantica.

Our design combines the contemporary life with traditions from Brazilians House building and an Scandinavian openness and obsession for details. The house is designed as continuous shared space; organized, separated and connected by the central garden.

The house is a reinterpretation of the traditional Brasilian Villa, with its open patio in the center for ventilation and light. The concept is expanded as the organizing element for the entire house.

It is a house for the contemporary family, shared space is at the core of the house, life evolves around the internal patio. The patio connects and separates living, kitchen, relax, library, play room, office and private quarters. The garden is enclosed and can act as part of the house day and night. It is living with and in nature.

The exterior wall becomes huge furniture of storage, from books to wine to tools. Light materials and screens of wooden meshwork form the exterior of the house. A strict exterior and a soft organic interior define the house and the life in the house.
