Rio da Várzea House in Rio Grande do Sul, Brazil by 151 Office Arquitetura

Wednesday, October 18th, 2017

Article source: 151 Office Arquitetura 

The initial aim of this project was the creation of a space that would unite indoors with outdoors, without losing privacy. Due to the limitation of the land (360m2), the idea was to ensure the best use of the spac-es, considering the angle of the sun. It is a large residence, with a social area fully connected to the ex-ternal area. The absence of walls and the use of frames ensures the full use of the natural light. In addi-tion, both the plate glass as well as the extension of the upper floor over the lower floor ensures better thermal comfort. Energy saving was also considered an essential factor for this project, such that, in all areas, LED lighting technology was used.

Rio das Contas House in Xangri-lá, Brazil by 151 OFFICE ARQUITETURA

Tuesday, October 10th, 2017

Article source: 151 OFFICE ARQUITETURA

The initial idea for this project, on the Xangri-lá beach, was to give the air of a rural house located on the beach, using a considerable area of the land. In order to meet the owner’s expectations, who like an open house without losing privacy, all of the faces of the social area were designed as a part of the ex-ternal area. In addition, natural light and cross ventilation were used with the aim of avoiding the use of air conditioning. Energy saving was also optimized with the use of LED technology in all ambients. The concrete walls, beyond creating an inequivalent brute and rustic appearance, offer advantages regarding the temperature and low maintenance.

Franca House in Brasília, Brazil by BLOCO Arquitetos Associados

Wednesday, October 4th, 2017

Article source: BLOCO Arquitetos Associados

The Franca House is located in na urban plot in one of the residential areas in Brasília, Brazil, called Lago Norte (North Lake). Here the recent low in the rent prices and the estabilization in the prices of the land have favoured a change in the neighborhood´s dwellers profile. The settlement of young families with children besides the occupation of the houses by new residential programs such as student shared houses have increased the density of inhabitants. In our view this transformation creates a new opportunity to reactivate the idea of the house as an extension of the city and vice-versa, which is a way of seeing the public space that was usual for the families that lived there in decades before. Therefore the fundamental idea of the project was to create a strong possibility of connection between the public space (the street) and the private space (the house).

Article source: Boa Arquitetura

The HLM House emerges from a client’s request to build a retreat on a natural area in the outskirts of the city of Santa Maria, in the southern state of Rio Grande do Sul, Brazil. The idea was to provide a place where one coul find himself in deep contact with the landscape, near enough from the city so working was still possible. From the begining, the challenge found was how to build something that could rise in the landscape as if it had always belonged to the place.

RK House in Paraná, Brazil by AP Architetos

Monday, September 18th, 2017

Article source: AP Architetos 

AP Arquitetos was founded in 2010 and seeks to establish a contemporary architectural language, experimental and still focused on local and historical values. We understand architecture much more as a methodological process in which several professionals act together. With this vision we can reach new ideas and concepts that can be applied in a practical way and with a high degree of innovation and experimentalism. Our process works each project in a unique way, that is, with a “tailoring” thought. The firm has projects in several Brazilian cities besides Peru, Italy and the USA.
