Architecture Design of Brasil House

Description About The Project

Brasil House is a renovation project by Play Arquitetura from the house designed in the 1980s by Henrique Cambiaghi. Indeed, it is an elegant house with beautiful design of the concrete structure, the large wooden windows, and the view of the trees at the back of the land. However, an unconventional feature is the kitchen was on the upper floor, which caused disorderly changes by the last owners, who built annexes without architectural connections with the original house. In addition to this, the social area on the lower floor was not integrated with the garden or the kitchen. Another large social space with beautiful proportions that occupied an intermediate level of the house also did not connect well with the garden and the view and ended up underutilized.

In the renovation project, the middle floor became the main living area of ​​the house, and the kitchen transferred to the lower floor, connected to the dining room and the new recreation area. For better integration between these two floors, the architect redid the main staircase. The main access also changed. The social entrance that previously led to the lower floor modified to give access to the intermediate level, through a walkway created in the side setback. The pool was also redesigned and rebuilt. Besides, the main visual alteration to the front was the creation of vertical wooden fins covering a very varied set of windows – bathrooms, pantry, laundry area, etc. – facing the street.
