FGMF Arquitetos lately accomplished Casa Jordão for a household in Monte-Mor, São Paulo that longed for a vacation retreat. The only story construction is positioned on a stud farm that dictates constructing codes for the realm. One of many major guidelines required that they use clay for the roof, a typical sight in Brazilian structure. With that in thoughts, the architects started with an archetypal home form, just like a child’s drawing, and continued by including a barn-like extrusion. The completed result’s an open flooring plan with a middle backyard that leads into the social areas.
A black slate pool wraps round two sides of the general public areas of the home.
The center part of the construction options sliding glass doorways that disappear to create an open-air, pavilion-style house with indoor/out of doors connection.
The lounge feels huge with either side open making it good for household gatherings. A customized storage unit separates this house from the opposite facet, which homes seating and a fire that open out onto the facet pool.
The kitchen resides in a mini home made out of darkened wooden, reverse of the sunshine wooden partitions and ceiling of the primary construction surrounding it.
Behind the kitchen quantity, the personal part of the home lives with a number of bedrooms and a child’s play space.
