Architecture Design of The Muxarabi House

Description About The Project

The Muxarabi House designed by Cris Furlan Arquitetura is a stunning home which is attractive for its singular volumetric form. Indeed, the architecture is simple but very impressive of straight lines, the integrated spaces as well as the harmony between interior and exterior.

Located at a site of 492m², the house built of reinforced concrete and brick masonry. The major challenge was to elaborate refined architecture at a site with limited dimensions and many particular use restrictions. On the other hand, the design that was proposed emphasizes the integration of spaces and the diluting of limits between the interior and exterior. It promotes social interaction and wellness. In addition to this, the warm climate of the city where the house stands and the total absence of balconies in the bedrooms. A request of the owner, determined the development of the volumetric form.

The main entrance marked by a generous pivoting slatted wooden door that gives access to the living room. In the living room, the house is visually permeable, there are no visual boundaries until the end of the site. Besides, the ground floor plan composed of the entrance hall, the living room that connects with the gourmet area, and the kitchen. Also on the ground floor are the guest suite and the service area. An expressive staircase made of White Paraná Marble leads to the private area, on the 1º floor, consisting of a Family room and three suites.
