Casa eR2

Casa eR2 em-estudio

The project emerged with the idea of taking advantage of the views from the residence to the eucalyptus forest that is located adjacent to the plot.
Three slender concrete slabs give shape to the rectangular volume that is the starting point of the proposal. The house sits mid-level above ground to create the space of the garage and have a better view of the treetops.
A section is extracted from the volume of the house to create a central patio where an existing Eucalyptus is preserved; and the detached volume generates a body on the side to create the main entrance of the residence.
Patio / Living Room

The lower part of the volume, where the public areas of the house are, has a glass skin to have better views of the courtyard and visually expand the space towards the forest. In the top floor the main façades have a wooden lattice to filter the light and protect the rooms from sunlight without losing the view.
Interior Patio and Kitchen

An interior patio with a fountain serves as a transitional space between the kitchen and the TV room, and to create a visual connection with the central patio and the adjoining forest.
