Casa do Campo Lindo by Ren Ito Arq
The project had the goal to unify two pre-existing ruined buildings to create a detached single-family house.
Unifying and restoring these two houses, a “L” shaped volume was created, which defined an embraced exterior space with a swimming pool.
The common and private spaces are distinguished with definition of the volumes and interior design. Common area (kitchen, living room, gym and multipurpose room) are one-floor-open-space and private spaces (bedrooms and bathroom) are located at three stories independent tower, connected by a corridor to the other spaces.
The roof of the open-space was designed with the concept of “umbrellas”, which softly delimit each space in one large space. The indirect illuminations with umbrella bone shape reinforce this idea and convey a sense of well-being.
