studio arthur casas composes JY house with two separate volumes in são paulo

this vacation house in são paulo, built by studio arthur casas for a family with two adult children, is divided into two main volumes, displaced from one another. the ground floor contains the entire social area, which is fully integrated with the exterior, opening to the view of the golf course just ahead, while the upper volume accommodates the more sheltered, private suites.

the side of the JY house facing the street is more closed, which guarantees privacy, while on the upper floor, studio arthur casas has incorporated three private suites. the master suite has an antechamber of its own, which residents can use as an office and intimate living room. the upper floor also has a gym and a games room, both with completely independent access.

on the ground floor, a long piece of furniture, made of freijó wood, divides the dining room and kitchen, giving uses to both sides and creating an access corridor, which connects the entrance of the house to the end of the dining room. in addition to the social area, which is directly connected to the terrace and swimmign pool outside, the ground floor incorporates two guest suites.

the materials chosen and the design of the project differentiates the residence from the neighbors

 

 

‘the biggest challenge of the project was the execution of large swings and spans in a very slender structure,’ notes the studio. ‘the solution was to use the spaces between floors to create inverted beams. the facade cladding of the house was executed in gray leaded aluminum, which allows little maintenance and differentiates the residence from the neighbors, as desired by the client.’

monolithic flooring was chosen for its beauty and practicality, while lighting within the residence sought to be as pure and linear as possible, working mainly with indirect light. the house has solar water heating, a green roof, plastic wooden deck, and cross air circulation, which reduces the need to use air conditioning, minimizing the impacts on the environment and meeting sustainable requirements.
