FGMF arquitetos cantilevers white volumes in sao paulo's neblina house

renowned architecture practice FGMF arquitetos has completed the neblina house in sao paulo. consisting of a composition of white volumes projected from the sun orientation, this residential property oversees the itatiba valley in the country side of the brazilian city. the mesmerizing views and the necessity for privacy were carefully considered when planning the distance from the street and when developing the desire to integrate the house with gardens.

neblina house by FGMF arquitetos features volumes with different dimensions and heights for the rooms, bathrooms, office, garage and stairs. these volumes arise sometimes set on the ground, and other times floating above a large front garden, hiding the social area of the house. a thin concrete structure with a cantilever strengthens the program visual approach. the resulting glass living room is visually integrated to a large swimming pool, but far enough to permit isolation along the year.

the service areas were partially hidden in a certain quota with a green roof, being disguised in the landscape and working as a kind of retaining wall. this containment created a plateau hidden from the public view. in this place, a living room was projected as a glass resulting from the upper volumes. a covered and closed space for leisure, the remaining plastic design, hovering the water mirror and towards this awesome view.
