MOdern House

The MOdern House project addresses for a contemporary loft style way of life. The design is strongly influenced by  "The Paulista School" of modernist architecture, that was formed in São Paulo, Brazil , during the 1950s.

The principles from the Modern Movement and from the International style were revived, but adapted to a contemporary living and its terms, to the current needs for more flexible spaces, the use of new structures and materials available nowadays.

This project was developed for a smart couple or a wealthy independent resident, and was created to explore the quality of contemporary home design.

This intention is achieved by the design of some unique and special elements:

  •  The singular shape of the house and its construction elements;
  •  Totally Free floor plan alowing a remarkable spacial fluidity;
  • The assimetrical shape of the plan, making it an interesting geometric composition and permiting a different spatial division;
  • Support of ground-level pilotis, elevating the building from the earth, and therefore allowing an eco-occupation of the land; The space below the house can be used for carport and gardens;
  • Floor to ceiling windows clears the way to unobstructed views, providing
  • illumination and cross ventilation;
  • The house incorporates the outside nature indoors

The project was developed in just 2 days, through the speed of the SketchUP program.
