House JJ by Obra Arquitetos:

“The house is located in the Serra da Mantiqueira, in the city of Amparo, São Paulo.

The nature of the site, with steep incline and privileged view we chose to design the residence towards the formation of a platform, with a public and wide dimension. In the shaded area, which features the living room, dining room, kitchen and laundry area, much of it is glazed allowing, this way, the full visibility of the external environment.

At night, the city lights softly illuminate the ambients.

The lower volume houses the intimate use areas such as bedrooms, bathrooms, TV room and office. This organization of the program and spaces was chosen because it provides greater intimacy to the rooms, oriented to the east and closed by the retaining wall to the opposite side. Coverage serves floor to the second floor, creating a possible flat space to be used by the locals as recreational space.

The building system is all reinforced concrete cast on site.”
