From the restinga to the intervention plan, the project for a single-family residence in Atami has as its starting point in the invitation to bonding. From the demands for design, moments of relaxation in the family topped the list of problems to be solved; Perhaps, if not for sure, this justifies the four suites that compose the superior volume of the residence that still contains a spacious Master Suite.
The implementation of the project respects the local conditions and takes advantage of the beachfront, properly distanced and protected by a wide restinga area. Two blocks from the sand, the corner lot receives north and east sunshine on its main facades and takes full advantage of daylight through large glazed openings.
Following the street layout plan, the house rests on a light slope designed to bring to the suites a view of the sea. In addition, the access path, punctuated by vegetation, gains spatial richness through levels that must be overcome to reach the entrance plane.
The large volume of the second floor is supported by high pilotis and elevates the rationalist status of the house to another level by freeing the entire hall of the ground floor for social activities; the goal is one: bonding. In addition to all the functions necessary for the proper development of the family routine, spatial conception follows the modern primer: the least number of environments compatible with the conditions that determine the construction and our way of living. That is, a living that adds all the functions and that, somehow, are separated or are protected in its interior by architectonic expedients, seen here the pergolas of the lateral garden, the great plan that contains the fireplace and the accesses to the technical areas of the house.
The ground plan, when completely open, expands to the entire garden area, which contains seating areas shaded by medium sized trees and the pool water slide, adjacent to being covered and reference to the beach sea of Atami.
