Contemporary Architecture of Iporanga House
Architectural Elegance :
Project : Iporanga House
Location : Iporanga, Sao Paulo’s coast, Brazil
Design for : One couple, 3 sons and One guests
Architect : Nitsche Arquitetos Associados
Size : 400m2 built up area approx
Floor : 3 levels
Design Considerations :
- Iporanga House ground floor there is a small enclosed area for services. A small accommodation for a house keeper couple, a laundry and a deposit.
- Design of the Iporanga House first floor created to support all the program social activities, living, dining room the kitchen and the swimming pool.
- The wood frame space is the “private” part of the Iporanga House, so, the street side is enclosed by opaque boards ( of wood and covered on both faces with a concrete slab), glass panels along with a nylon curtain.
- On the forest side, we create aluminum sliding doors opening for rooms to a common veranda.
- This volume creates a shadow on the slab, and we used that shadow for the social area.
- This floor is almost an open space, protected on all sides by transparent temperate glass sliding panels, so the forest can be seen at all times.
- The intention was to decrease the difference between inner and outside space of Iporanga House, making it work all as one integration area.
- The structural concept of the Iporanga House was inspired by small brook bridges typical from this litoraneal area.
- The foundation in humid soil, concrete columns support the Steel beans which support the wood frame.
- We tried to make the construction an assembling of parts more than an in loco process, about less waste at the building site, more agility and proper use of industrialized materials.
