US House by Bittar Arquitetura
Bittar Arquitetura has designed the US House in a residential area in the state of Goais, Brazil. Nearly 6,000 square feet of wonderful, contemporary living spaces are spread out across a single level with a fantastic courtyard in the middle. The interior design opens up to this courtyard with easy access to the deck and the swimming pool.
While undertaking this project we took into account the needs and requests of our clients while working within the bounds of condominium regulations. We created a balance by integrating the surrounding topography into a modern architecture theme. We emphasized straight elongated simple lines without drastic changes to the structure’s size. Glass doors integrate the interior and exterior into a dynamic, functional, and well illuminated space.
The wide external staircase opens onto a balcony, and together with the living and dining areas, creates a unique space that embraces the natural world. The living and dining doors open to the deck, pool and garden, continuing the theme. These external areas form an internal patio with the external walls allowing for bioclimatic benefits of ventilation and lighting.
An extensive wooden panel opens into the kitchen allowing for the unification of all areas (social, leisure, and function) and even camouflaging one of the bathrooms in the circulation. All of this is connected to the private area where there are four suites sheltered at the rear of the property.
