Fidalga 727 in Sao Paulo, Brazil by Triptyque

January 12th, 2012 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: Triptyque

The urban landscape of São Paulo is heavily influenced by two main characters that coexist independently and simultaneously. On one hand the vertical constructions, most of them faithful to the modernist/rationalist models, evolve randomly with the inconstant guidelines of the urban planning. On the other hand the historical and/or informal occupation on two or three floors of the residual spaces between these constructions.

The ensemble is characterized by spectacular scale and gauge brakes, resulting in a chaotic and discontinuous urban landscape. Located in the of a middle class neighborhood that is going through constant transformations, the project -a standard housing tower- is precisely put in this context and is situated on the margins of one of these permanent breaks, revealing a split panoramic skyline.

This proposal is nourished by the formal and textual complexity of the site instead of a reformulation of the traditional model of the “paulista” residence. The fragmentation of building’s body into three parts is made for a better integration of the recreational area and the vertical / horizontal circulations, and a small square in the frontal area is returned to the urban space.

The housing units are stacked according to a non-linear and non-modular variation of typologies and windows, giving the building its main look, marked by the use of simple and urban materials (predominantly black asphalt).

The design of the homes/ apartments follow these principals:

– Individual access by external gateway.
– One apartment/home in each floor, emphasizing the 300 degrees view / ventilation
– A remarkable architectural element per apartment (double volumes, patio terrace, duplex / penthouse garden).
– Different windows in each unit,
-Free plan allowing different internal partitions – modular hydraulic and electrical plugs distribution.
