The concept desired for this project was to create an elementary architectural composition combined with advanced techniques in wood housing construction. Located in São Paulo´s northeast shore, this house has been designed to be a beach house in essence: a place of refuge in the middle of Atlantic Rainforest, sheltered from the rain and the sun, beneath porches. It is a veranda house with large eaves and just a few walls, where indoor and outdoor spaces are fully integrated. We designed a transparent element for the upper floor, so it wouldn’t harm the visual relation with the sea and the forest.

In practice, there is a flat roof with glue-laminated wood beams and glass lateral closing where the living areas, kitchen and master suite are located. The veranda is under a 4 meters overhang, and it is the continuity of the living room. The access to the house is in the lower level that acts as a base of stone walls for the house. Two other suites and a home-theater are also located in this level. Materials incorporated in the project: glass, Freijó wood, rough stone and granite sawed.
