This summer residence on São Paulo’s northern coast is implanted in a steep plot of land of 4.500 square meters. The topography of the land associated with a warm and humid weather, a high rainfall rate in the area and the difficulty of transporting materials to the site were crucial guidelines to the project design.
This 147 square meters house consists of a conventional structure that supports a prefabricated wooden pavilion out of the ground. Large eaves in a single blade aluminum cover protect the house of the intense rainfall common in the area and fulfill the simple design.
The roof works along with the continuous bench, which protects and defines the veranda, providing a gentle horizontal aspect to the house.
