The house is located in Buzios, in front of the sea. The plot was narrow and very long, and the legislation was really constraining. As a result, the house is divided into two traditonal houses surrounded by pergolas.
All the design and space planning were based on two main preoccupations, which were the tremendous view and the climate : the humid warmth and the maresia, a highly caustic wind from the brazilian east coast.
The first house opened on the beach, thanks to a generous entrance and a wood panel that guide us until the patio.
A central circulation divided the ground floor into two areas. On the south, the tecnical part. On the North, the guest part. At the first floor, the two children bedrooms opened on large green terrasses.
The second house is completely oriented on the view.
A big living room opened on the garden and the beach.
On the first floor, the suite had an amazing view and a bench integrated to the windows invited us at admiring it.
The various pergolas around the house protected the house from the sunlight, whereas lateral windows permitted a natural ventilation.
The lateral spaces were treated like a in and out space, ideal to bring nature into the house.
Moreover, to face the ecologic concern and the water supply’s problem of Brazil, the used water was recycled for the garden irrigation and solar panels were installed on the roof.
