A A House in Sao Paulo by Andrade Morettin Architects

December 21, 2013 By: archinhome Category: contemporary house design

This A A house is located in Sao Paulo was designed by Andrade Morettin Architects.
Description from Architects:
This is a residence embedded in an urban lot in the neighborhood of Morumbi, Sao Paulo. Through its implantation on the site, it seeks to leave its ground floor entirely free, giving continuity to the public space. To enhance this potential, the glass prism that serves as a “natural light injector” inside the house, is installed so that it can be lifted up (like a crane), completely freeing the entrance level.

360° Building Design by Isay Weinfeild Architects, in São Paulo, Brazil

December 01, 2013 By: archinhome Category: Architecture

This 360° Building is design by Isay Weinfeild Architects, located in São Paulo, Brazil.
Mindful of the urban reality in São Paulo, of the market and of the client brief, Isay Weinfeld with Domingos Pascali as associate architect have strived to introduce 360º Building as an alternative to the vertical multi-family housing “model”, which, in its commonest form, merely stacks up apartment units – ordinary, compact and closed onto themselves.

360º Building, rising on top of the ridge separating the districts of Alto de Pinheiros and Alto da Lapa – a geographic location that will offer privileged sights of the surrounding area and the city, will feature 62 elevated homes with yards: real yards, not balconies, designed as genuine living spaces, wide, airy and bright. It will present 7 types of apartments – either 130, 170 or 250 sq m – combined in sets of 2, 3 or 4 units per floor, in 6 different arrangements.

Leaving the street and past the reception, a suspended walkway will lead to the building’s lobby, surrounded on all sides by a reflective pool. Down one floor, on the ground level, entertaining areas and other facilities – gym, lounge, party room and laundry – will be located, as also the janitor’s living quarters. Further down, there will be 3 parking levels, and, on the lowermost level, employees quarters, storage and engine rooms, in addition to a sauna and an outdoor swimming pool. The land, a steep downwards slope, allowed the lower levels to be semi-subterranean, always keeping 2 sides open to the light and to ventilation. The building projects to all sides showing no distinction between main and secondary façades.
