PS House by Jacobsen Arquitetura
The PS House by Jacobsen Arquitetura is a stunning contemporary residence placed very close to a beautiful Brazilian beach. Don’t worry, we are not repeating projects all the time if you read the architects’ name. It’s just that this studio has so many amazing residence designs that we simply have to showcase. Just recently we brought you closer to the FL House in Braganca Paulista and before that we had featured their MLA House project in Sao Paulo, as well as a few others.
Back to the PS House, it is designed as a weekend getaway from the busy city-dwelling life of Sao Paulo for a young couple and their kids. It is right next to the beach but it also has a swimming pool.
This is requested to be a weekend house for a young couple form São Paulo and their infant kids.
It is set in a L shape, blocking the street since it’s located in a corner of two access roads to the beach. Therefore, the site’s core is free from visual intrusion and receives the pool and yard, with the best sun orientation and a private access to the beach.
It has a controlled scale, meant to be practical and easy to keep. With its steel structure, slim wide eves, wooden ceilings and charred wood facades and granite floor, constructed areas area as integrated as possible, as entrance hall, living and dinning rooms turn into varandas when its glass windows are widely open to the pool and garden.
Play room, sauna, and service are placed in a lower level, using the light inclination of the plot to disguise it, and give the house a single story aspect.
