House in Tamandare by Karina Guidolin Arquitetura
Karina Guidolin Arquitetura has completed the House in Tamandare project in Brazil. This contemporary dwelling was designed for a young family with small kids and it provides them with just under 3,500 square feet of minimalist living spaces that extend out to a beautiful lawn.
Designed for a young family, with small kids, this ground floor house is located in a residential area, in the limit between the cities of Bento Gonçalves and Garibaldi. The lot is a few meters behind a fishing and hunting club, surrounded by abundant nature.
The project is organized in L shape, leaving the bedrooms in the east/west zone and the social and service areas in the north/south zone.
Our biggest challenge was to combine a strong volumetric composition, the efficiency of environmental comfort and a program that related to the external area. With that in mind, the house was left fluid, integrated and plane in most spaces, being opened to the backyard in the north façade through a porch. The high and tilt ceiling in the social area guarantees natural ventilation and illumination, besides bringing space hierarchy.
The view from the external area to the internal is regulated through vertical brise soleils in the front façade and in the intimate corridor. The view to the surrounding landscape from the backyard and bedrooms is managed through a wall, composed in a rhythm of full and empty spaces, designed to control the privacy in relation to the neighbors.
