Location. The design of Casa Guaimbê seeks to enhance the views of the private garden as well as the city. The land is located on a steep slope, with neighbors on both sides. The orthogonal character sought to orient the openings to the main view, guaranteeing privacy for the house. This way, we managed to create a large free area for the garden and swimming pool, taking advantage of the sunniest orientation.
一楼。与地方的融合和对地形的分析指导了L型正交体的创造，构成了主要的体量。优先建立与该地的构造关系，从主立面创建的轴线贯穿厨房、餐厅、客厅和家庭影院。通过一个广泛的休闲区项目，主体量扩展到土地上，并划分出美食空间，贯穿花园和游泳池。与游泳池的空隙对齐的是一个居民私人健身房的小亭子。滑动和透明的玻璃平面被一个极简主义的框架所包围，有助于重新确定 “内部 “和 “外部 “的概念。特别是，住宅的社交区提供了花园的壮观景色。
First Floor. The integration with the place and the analysis of the topography-guided the creation of the orthogonal volume in L that constitutes the main volumetry. Prioritizing establishing a tectonic relationship with the place, the axis created from the main facade runs through the kitchen, dining room, living room, and home theater. With an extensive program of leisure areas, the main volume expands into the land and divides the gourmet space, which runs through the garden and pool. Aligned with the void of the pool is a small pavilion of the residents’ private gym. Sliding and transparent glass planes framed by a minimalist frame contribute to re-signifying concepts of “inside” and “outside”. In particular, the social area of the residence offers a spectacular view of the garden.
Second Floor. The distribution of the social and intimate area flow is arranged by a sculptural staircase, which allows access from the upper volume to the lower hall. On the upper floor, private areas of the program were allocated: a guest bedroom and cinema on one side and connected by a walkway that runs through the ground floor void, the son’s suites, and the master suite.
One of the highlights is the dramatic balance created by the volume where the main suite of the residence is located, which advances over the land and is accentuated by the extension of the eaves. This programmatic distribution sought to give greater freedom to the main floor of the residence so that these environments were not directly linked to the social area of the house or the family’s private área.
Appearance. Indeed, it is essential to emphasize the refined plastic treatment given to the panels that cover almost all the glass planes on the second floor. Muxarabi panels cover some of the glass planes, molded by a mesh with a modular design, working as light filters and offering privacy for the intimate area. This solution allows adequate control of natural lighting and provides dynamism, versatility, and uniqueness to the facade’s composition.
The silver travertine marble, lining, and freijó wood panels were the base materials, providing unity to the project. The wood plays a leading role in the project’s development, allowing the configuration of a contemporary spatial concept. Providing the integration of external and internal areas, the lining crosses the glass planes and covers the flaps. To create a counterpoint of finishes, the floor of the intimate area was made in tauari while the joinery, lining, and slats were designed in freijó. The area around the pool has been paved with cement boards between grass spaces.
