Jardim Paulistano House attends to sustainable modern design

 

Jardim Paulistano House, a project by AMZ Architects, exemplifies sustainable design within a narrow 10×70 meter plot in São Paulo. This residence, created for a young family, harmonizes modern living with environmental stewardship. Facing the challenge of a narrow and long plot, the house was designed to integrate nature and sustainability from the outset. The existing large trees were a key factor in the site’s selection, reflecting the commitment to maintaining natural elements. The design incorporates a water treatment system for reuse, solar panels for electricity generation and water heating, and a dry construction technique using a metal structure and Steel Frame walls with CLT wood slabs. This approach significantly reduces the environmental impact compared to traditional concrete methods.

 

The facade and some ground floor walls feature ventilated VIROC panels to enhance air circulation and reduce dependence on air conditioning. The careful selection of materials, guided by a sustainability consultancy, includes granilite made from recycled material and synthetic Neolith kitchen stone. The project was fully developed in BIM software, allowing for detailed pre-visualization and integration of elements before construction.

AMZ Architects’ house integrates with its surrounding nature

 

To maximize natural light and ventilation within the narrow plot, the design includes a skylight over the winter garden and nearly three-meter ceiling heights. The design team at AMZ Architects opts for these features to ensure a bright and welcoming interior. The ground floor office features a corner window with garden views, enhancing the connection between indoor and outdoor spaces. The upper floor includes an intimate living room for entertainment and a master suite with a garden view. Three additional suites accommodate the children and guests. An annex on the plot houses a second office, a yoga room, a sauna, and an outdoor area with a barbecue, all connected by a garden with a swimming pool. The original trees, including sibipiruna, tulip tree, tibouchina, and palm trees, were preserved to reinforce the integration of the domestic environment with nature.
