Text description of the architects. Casa Veraneio was created with the purpose of creating space for contemplating nature.
The desire for a practical, functional and cozy home has always been one of the principles of the office. The client’s identity and essence are important factors in the elaboration of spaces, so that the certainty of belonging to the home is acquired naturally.
The architectural part, with sectored volumetry, blends into the topography, respecting and making the most of the potential of the land. This property made it possible to design the infinity pool with natural stones.
The entire house overlooks the garden with lush tropical vegetation amidst natural materials that make up the project. Eaves in solid concrete, carpentry inside freejo and exposed brick were the selected highlighted materials. The transparency of the openings integrates the indoor and outdoor spaces, promoting fluidity and dynamism, completely changing the scenario at any time of the day.
The gourmet area is the heart of the house, this is where life takes place. It has been fully equipped so that everything for the family’s daily needs is at hand. In addition, a lounge with a fireplace is part of this environment and offers even more living space in everyday life.
The wood breezes guarantee privacy and thermal comfort for the rooms on the upper floor. The roof of the gourmet area was used for an outdoor lounge overlooking the pool and garden area, which also served as a sunset viewpoint.
Clients participated in the entire furniture and decoration curation process, which pays tribute to Brazilian artists and designers with contemporary and timeless pieces. The use of straw, fabrics and natural fibers emphasizes the aspect of a summer house, a sanctuary created in the middle of the city space with a feeling of being part of nature.
