DLW House

DLW House Westphal & Kosciuk Architects

In the continental zone of Florianopolis, Brazil, “Casa DLW” is located. Situated on a steep terrain, the owners of the residence wanted to have a dwelling where the social and private zones were not isolated from one another. To assure sunlight, cross ventilation and views to the city and the sea, the solution was to lift the living block onto a white cantilever that floats above the driveway. The room is connected to a terrace that privileges the panoramic view. Also on this level are the kitchen, the service area and a workshop with access to the backyard. Upstairs, the master bedroom, guest bedroom and office are programmed.
Two lower sectors keep the entrance hall, garage, warehouse and an indoor play quarter separate from this space. The grey color of the base accentuates the independence between the two volumes. The entire structure is connected by a staircase and an elevator.
