The design of modern Portobello house project starts from the inter connection between a topography that, continuously shapes by architecture. Conceptualize by the contemporary architect Marcelo Moura, from the Rio de Janeiro office Tripper Arquitetura. The Portobello residence is composed of a succession of overlapping plans. Each one is starting from the encounter with the ground to launch itself in the cantilever. A fact that ends up establishing a double condition. The modern house is responding to the land, providing a perception of the single-storey house on all floors. But, the house floor design becomes slabs in suspension, which are terraces in height. Through them, the architectural proposition approaches the tradition of the great Brazilian colonial house. The modern Portobello house is surrounding with the generous porch. These solarium and balconies are the inter-mediation between the intimate spaces of the modern house architecture and the exuberant natural landscape that surrounds it.
Modern House Portobello
Modern House Architecture:
Contemporary house Portobello locates in Mangaratiba, on the coast of the state of Rio de Janeiro. The steep terrain is just a few minutes from the beach, but not in its view. What are house blueprints with the vast mountain panorama, with a sequence of mountains covered by the Atlantic Forest? Portobello House is respectful of the existing nature of the land. The contemporary modular home occupies a relatively small area of the lot, with little land movement, and uses constructive methods – especially the metallic structure – that minimize activities in loco and the size of the construction site.

House Floor Design:
In the house, the basement is the areas of fruition. Embedded in the ground, the volume emerges at the top of which is the blue. L-shaped swimming pool in which the artifice of the “infinite border” is laid. Even though, it is structured in concrete. What we see of this lower prism is a combination of the water and the wood cumaru of the boards. That lines the walls and make up the pool deck.

Almost imperceptible to those who, when are climbing the ramp of access to the land. Observes the whole set, a discreet door in the middle of the wooden rules of the basement leads us to the closed environments of leisure. There is a games room, cinema, and sauna. At the pool side, the solarium is contiguous to an enclosure covered by the upper suspended plane. In this space is the barbecue and a glass supporting meals and outdoor gatherings.
The design of modern house:
Climbing the steps of the stairs (identical, but misaligned) that sit on the grassy slope. We arrive at the central plateau of the green building – the ground floor of the house. A long contention wall of stone provides the fit of the edification to the relief.
At this point, there is also the end of the curved access road of the vehicles and then the plateau with a wooden floor that surrounds the residence. There is a prominent section in it that launches in a cantilever structured by metallic I sections. The protection of the limits of this enlargement of the deck does not happen by a conventional railing but by a bench with seats in cumaru wood and erected by thin and precise plates of steel of trapezoidal format that allow a slight expansion beyond the perimeter of the floor.
House Structure Design Concept:
The House Portobello consists of a metal structure with a square modulation of axes distant six meters from each other. On the social floor, there are two modules for socializing (living and dining rooms in a unique environment). Characterized by total transparency and continuity between exterior and interior – large glass sliding doors make this diaphanous meditation.
On the other hand, the other module, in which the services are (kitchen, laundry, lavabo) is more closed and secluded under a wall covered in stone fillets. Which is in a way corroborates the tactile nature of the different plans and closings of the residence. These internal spaces are surrounded by a kind of porch (that is, by the slab of the upper story in a swing), which protects the room from a higher incidence of the sun’s rays and the weathering.
Modern house interior:
There is something solemn and astonishing as we climb up the inner staircase: We start with steps in travertine marble blocks, and then we have a linear sequence of swaying wooden boards. Where we can see the transition from the wide. Horizontal area of the room is the narrow and vertical space above the skylight, which is bathed in the atmosphere of natural light. Finally, unexpectedly, we do not reach a raised pavement, but a passageway contiguous with a small intimate garden – a brief lawn between the house and the beginning of the hill with the bush. If, at the back, we have a corridor glued to the ground, by the front facade we see the floor as a piano Nobile.
Modern house decor:
Bedroom: In this floor, there are four suites arranged side by side. The bedrooms open to both sides – obtaining the proverbial cross ventilation. That is more than justified by the simultaneous coastal and mountain air of the place.
Bathroom: On the other hand, the bathrooms are connected with the exterior always by the skylights in the ceiling. So the relation takes place by the sky, with a changing game of light and shadow. That distinguishes each season, month, and time of the day.

Balcony: This set of suites is surrounded by a generous balcony, which ends up having a double function, both of communication between the rooms and of being to contemplate the landscape. External to the double glass railing, the protection against excessive afternoon sunshine is made by six movable panels composed of horizontally parallel wooden battens.

Porch: There is clearly a material correspondence between vertical and horizontal planes, between the rise solarium and the roofs in cumaru of the upper porch and the lower porch. The beacon of such relationships are the beams in metallic I section (as a contemporary turntable) that structure and surround the slabs of both the floor of the suites and the roof – this, a flat slab covered with expanded clay.
