Small summer house in Brazil: Residência O.Z.
This small summer house was designed by Andrade Morettin Arquitetos Associados. It is located on the outskirts of Sao Roque, near São Paulo, Brazil.
Description by Andrade Morettin Arquitetos Associados:
“This small summer house is located on a farm on the outskirts of Sao Roque, a town about 60km (37mi) from São Paulo.
Intended for short stays, the pavilion succinctly solves the program in two bedrooms and a living room with integrated kitchen, organized linearly allowing its openness to the views and the surrounding vegetation.
The house is built with exposed concrete and a modular wooden structure. The roof and facade cladding is made of metal tiles and a polystyrene filling for thermal protection.
The south façade, made entirely of glass, opens all interior areas to the view and extends them beyond the shell of metal tile with a large wooden roof.
On the north side, near the hill, the volume is enclosed by polycarbonate panels and high frames to protect from the sun.”
