One of the important aspects of the project was to guarantee the three floors were never perceptible from the outside, looking for a better fit in the plot and consequently in the surrounding landscape.Save this picture!© Ricardo SantosOn the ground floor the living room and kitchen assume the center of the house, in relation with the outside space and with the double height of the mezzanine. The west-facing rooms are accessed by a double-height corridor that reveals the mezzanine and bedroom windows and the rooftop skylight. The articulation between the three floors is guaranteed by a spiral staircase assumed as the core element in every daily use of the house.Save this picture!© Ricardo SantosSave this picture!Constructive sectionSave this picture!© Ricardo SantosTo the north side, the distended sheet metal facade creates a filter in the house’s relationship with the access road and allows to create a views space protected to define a patio north of the living room. To the south the big openings show up in search of the necessary intimacy and the field depth relationship that the valley allows.Save this picture!© Ricardo SantosOn the pool terrace a covered space is defined by the building which provides shade and the necessary surface to support the pool activities.
