Itu House by Maristela Faccioli Architecture

December 24, 2011

Maristela Faccioli Architecture have designed this house in Itu, São Paulo, Brazil.


Description from the architect:

Weekend house built in the countryside surroundings of Sao Paulo city. Designed as a place to find leisure, much of its space is intended to social and relaxing usages: cooking, guest friends, exercising, being outdoors.

Located in a condominium in the city of Itu, the land of this residence faces a lake and is neighbor to an area of preserved native forest. Given the program and construction constraints, the architects intention was to implement the constructed area respecting the 30 meters setback from the lake, determined by environmental legislation, meanwhile concentrating the majority of the indoors program in just on block. This was determinant in maintaining the lot as much permeable and green as possible.
