FGMF Arquitetos just lately accomplished Casa Jordão for a household in Monte-Mor, São Paulo that longed for a vacation retreat. The single story construction is situated on a stud farm that dictates constructing codes for the world. One of the principle guidelines required that they use clay for the roof, a standard sight in Brazilian structure. With that in thoughts, the architects started with an archetypal home form, much like a child’s drawing, and continued by including a barn-like extrusion. The completed result’s an open ground plan with a middle backyard that leads into the social areas.
A black slate pool wraps round two sides of the general public areas of the home.
The center part of the construction options sliding glass doorways that disappear to create an open-air, pavilion-style house with indoor/out of doors connection.
The lounge feels huge with either side open making it excellent for household gatherings. A customized storage unit separates this house from the opposite aspect, which homes seating and a hearth that open out onto the aspect pool.
The kitchen resides in a mini home comprised of darkened wooden, reverse of the sunshine wooden partitions and ceiling of the principle construction surrounding it.
Behind the kitchen quantity, the non-public part of the home lives with a number of bedrooms and a child’s play space.
