Offset House in Sao Paulo, Brazil by Shieh Arquitetos Associados

Saturday, February 23rd, 2013

Article source: Shieh Arquitetos Associados

The house is a direct result of the site’s complicated geometry. In plan, perimetral lines are given by the highest possible occupation of the property, discounting setbacks (restrained either by municipal legislation, or by the neighborhood regulation). Thus the nickname Offset House: a house that is the reflection of the sides of the lot.

Plot 40 House in São Paulo, Brazil by Tacoa Arquitetos

Thursday, February 21st, 2013

Article source: Tacoa Arquitetos

The São Roque residence was designed based on two constraints: it should take full advantage of the southern view of the lot with an average slope of twenty percent, and be a single-floor dwelling. As a site for the house and the immediate yard, a thirty by thirty meter area was leveled to a height of three meters below the highest point of the lot, based on a calculation of equal amounts of excavation and landfill, using retaining walls reinforced with geo-grids.
