This Spacious Baroneza House is placed 90 kilometers North-west of the city of São Paulo, Brazil, right within the Brazilian Atlantic forest. Its area is 1127,0 square meters. The house was designed in 2011 by Candida Tabet Arquitetura for a young couple with three children as their weekend house.
According to the architects,
In order to enjoy from the astonishing views, the main façade needed to be orientated to the North-West: this would result in the house receiving big amounts of tropical heat. Confronted with this dilemma, the solution was to propose a lattice wooden panel that elegantly hangs from the edge of the roof and acts as a brise that filters the heat and sunlight while projecting shadows over floor and walls in the form of a beautiful graphic design.
The roof extends beyond the living room and towards the swimming pool, creating a high ceiling veranda, where the limit between interior and exterior gets blurred. These large outdoor spaces that also include a barbecue area are extensively and happily used by all the occupants of the house throughout the year, becoming the social hart that the brief required.
