Developed in a terrain with a triangular shape located in the city of Jundiai in the state of Sao Paulo, the residence was projected from two intersected blocks arranged in opposite directions.
The main activities take place on a single floor, which favors accessibility. This floor contains the living room integrated fireplace room, kitchen, pantry, laundry room, a small office, the three bedroom suite, the gourmet space, and the dressing room. On this same level are the pool and the water mirror. The lower floor contains the garage.
The steel frame construction was designed to minimize the direct incidence of the sun, and has the positioning of the largest openings to the east facade. The gourmet space opens to the north facade and to the south facade, which also favors thermal comfort at this location. The bedroom openings were designed with generous dimensions to suit well the issues of ventilation and sunshine.
The exterior is lined with porcelain tile that imitates wood, white mass and rough stone. The wooden Cumaru frames as well as the wooden deck and the fulget exterior flooring offer a rustic tone that contrasts with the contemporary lines of the building.
