Norton Restaurant in Brasília, Brazil by BLOCO Arquitetos

Wednesday, May 31st, 2017

Article source: BLOCO Arquitetos

“The ceiling used to be decorative, a symbolic plane, a place invested with intense iconography. (…) Now, it has become an entire factory of equipment that enables us to exist, a space so deep that it begins to compete with the architecture. It is a domain over which architects have lost all control, a zone surrendered to other professions.” Rem Koolhaas, Venice Biennial. This restaurant is located on the rooftop of one of the newest unit of an international chain hotel located in the centre of Brasília. This is a type of space that is often impersonal, where standardized characteristics are kept throughout its units all over the world. In this project, we were interested in exploring the tension between characteristics that could be understood both as undefined and specific in a hotel building. Therefore, the project aimed to stress the differences between its two main surfaces: the floor and the ceiling. The floor is neutral and impersonal. The ceiling has a specific design with a clear iconographic reference.

VILA ROMANA RESIDENCE in São Paulo, Brazil by MMBB Arquitetos

Wednesday, May 17th, 2017

Article source: MMBB Arquitetos

The design of the Vila Romana Residence is derived from the twin imperatives of topography and usage.

It is situated on a corner plot with views of the town’s principal valley, with a drop of 10 meters from one side of the plot to the other.

The first question to be tackled was that of creating an artificial terrain that would allow for easy transit around the external areas and their use for day-to-day activities. The landscaping was determined by the creation of these areas.

Mattos House in São Paulo, Brazil by FGMF Arquitetos

Wednesday, May 3rd, 2017

Article source: FGMF Arquitetos

Design a house for a young family was the project’s main point. The steep-sloped site had a unique view to one of São Paulo’s main arterial roads. To use said site to our advantage in the creation of the house’s spaces, the attention to the circulation flows and the leisure area seemed to us like some of the most important questions to be addressed from the very beginning.

CARMO ADVOGADOS HEADQUARTER in Cuiaba, Brazil by MMEB arquitetos

Thursday, April 20th, 2017

Article source: MMEB arquitetos

Because it is an expansion, an attachment, we chose a harmonious integration with the existing building, on a site of modest dimensions, with a program of needs that conditioned the use of its whole construction potential. Our concern was to integrate the two parts while providing our work with its own personality. In order to achieve this, we initially used a horizontal block to simulate continuity to the existing building, and a vertical bar to break this idea, creating a counterpoint to it. These two basic shapes are sculptured and modified to form the building and receive natural light. On the facade we chose to make a few openings due to strong sunshine in the afternoon, considering that Cuiabá, a city located in central Brazil with a humid tropical climate, presents summer temperatures that can reach 42º C. If on one hand we shut off the façade to protect the building, on the other hand we created courtyards, so that the building can receive natural light and ventilation, an efficient and unusual solution today in our city, a forgotten regional tradition that we sought to recover. Considering the small dimensions of the lot, we decided in favor of a steel structure and external panels of lightweight cement slabs with all walls containing thermal and acoustic insulation and plasterboard on internal walls and ceilings. The design included two courtyards that serve as a source of natural light and ventilation. By adopting the courtyards, we provided our customers with a new way of life, taking into account that they were previously working in rooms with no natural light or ventilation. And the headquarters of Carmo Lawyers embodies this concept of sustainability, on its four floors space designed by us decorated.
