Entrenched in an Atlantic Forest reserve in the coast of the São Paulo state, this modern oceanfront house welcomes the sea view and the surrounding wild landscape. Installed on a steep slope, its structure can be defined in two parts: a monolithic concrete base supporting the garage and the pool and, on top of it, a modular wooden structure, profiled by a glass frame.
Founded in 2009, AMZ Arquitetos is a São Paulo based firm headed by Pablo Alvarenga and Adriana Zampieri. Along with their partners and architects, they’ve put together a collaborative and complimentary team that operate seeking a multifocal projecting approach combining architectural concept with interior design, environmental and constructability concerns since the beginning of every project.
They aim to combine pure and conceptually free project solutions with adequate constructive methods through a cooperative process that connects clients, consultants and constructors in all stages of any given project. AMZ Arquitetos has works that range from the urban scale to the object scale, approaching each new commission as a unique challenge.
Signed by AMZ Arquitetos, led by the architects Adriana Zampieri and Pablo Alvarenga; this luxury contemporary home is located in a green residential area in São Paulo, Brazil. The house program was organized in three blocks based on functions (service, sleeping and leisure spaces) piled up and arranged in a way that creates a constant indoor-outdoor integration.
