AM House in São Paulo, Brasil by Studio GGA

Wednesday, April 11th, 2012

Article source: Studio GGA

Studio GGA was hired in July 2011 to develop a refurbishment project for a 140sqm house located in a charming rowhouse neighborhood of the Jardins district, in Sao Paulo. The house, built in the 1930s, was disfigured by reforms made during the 1980s and 90s. The proposal was to recover the proportions of the facade, to expand the groundfloor, unifying dining area, kitchen and living room and to create a larger, more contemplative, outside area with a small outhouse in the back divided between a playing room, for the client’s daughters, a laundry and a restroom. On the upper floor a dressing room was built giving access – through a small mixed structure (concrete and steel) footbridge – to a private recreation area with a wooden hot tub.

Article source: Bruce Stafford Architects

A typical eastern Suburbs harbour view site; long, narrow and sloping away from the road toward harbour and Manly views.
As the house is set lower than the road with living spaces opening back toward the street, a lightweight timber screen filters street views and creates privacy, yet allows light and ventilation to the private living spaces. The house has two living levels; the primary living level opens out toward an elevated view and the lower living area flows out to a pool deck and private courtyards.

Francois Roupinian, founder of Lightemotion, explains: “The church is used as a place of religious worship, a mission and also a venue for concerts and so we felt we should reflect and respect the three different roles within the lighting design. It also sits at the heart of the Quartier des Spectacles and so we wanted to bring attention to this historic building, located amidst the city’s wealth of cultural offerings.”
