The project for Casa EG was developed in two different moments: the initial project made in 2008/2009 and executed afterwards (the work was completed in 2011), and the reform project and completion of the interiors carried out between 2020 and 2022.
The LR house was built on a sloping plot, surrounded by neighboring lots on both sides. The project sought to privilege the powerful visual range of the landscape that unfolds from the east face, opposite to the main access road.
The MJE House is located on a steep slope, dialoguing with the spectacular view of the horizon, lake, and surrounding mountain landscape. Seeking to occupy the land horizontally, we started from the creation of an architecture with only one floor, which subtly interacted with the existing landscape.
As we began this beach house project located on the coast of São Paulo, we came across very clear conditions: accentuated downhill terrain as well as immersed in the Atlantic forest, legal restrictions for the occupation of the lot
The main areas of the LP residence, living room and bedrooms, open up towards the garden in a transverse direction to the wet areas. The elevated flooring, 45cm above the ground level, allows the front of the house to be used as a comfortable seating area facing the garden.
The AMB House is situated on the coast of São Paulo, Guaruja City in the middle of the Atlantic Forest. From the street you can only see one of the three floors of the house because the terrain has accentuated slopes that give different views of an almost untouched natural landscape.
This is a getaway house erected in the city of Piracicaba, 250km away from Sao Paulo. It is intended to serve as a meeting point for a family whose members are scattered across various cities around the state.
