With a vast program to be fulfilled, the MMS house, was built through a mixed structural system (reinforced concrete and metallic structure), since the client came to us with the intention of realizing a residence with simple solutions and fast execution. For this, Pascali Semerdjian Architects divided the aforementioned program into 4 floors that coincide with the division of the house: the subsoil is configured as a service sector, the ground floor and the last floor as social and coexistence sectors and the first floor as an intimate sector.

From the centralized implantation in the terrain and the determination of a central axis of vertical circulation, we conceive the spaces in an integrated way in order to stimulate the social interactions of the residents. Aiming at better comfort, we maximize natural light collection, ventilation and outdoor contact in all environments, which sometimes open onto the street at the height of the treetops, or open onto an outdoor area with a tropical garden.
