Building 1232

Arquea Arquitetos as Architects

Located in a narrow site in downtown of Curitiba, the project aim the best use for a program of four studios.

 

This two-story building, have in the ground floor the parking area. The passerby can see the back of the lot from the street, creating a continuous relationship between public and private space.

 

Arranged through a central atrium with stairways and walkways, each floor receives two apartments, one facing the street and another facing the garden. The kitchen and service areas open to the atrium, thus ensuring ventilation and natural lighting.

 

The apartment also maintains this spatial relationship of continuity, the facade of the street is full of transparent glass. Wooden brises and curtains allow movement to the facade, give privacy and adapt to various moments of inhabiting. The life of the building and the city are connected through this closer relation created by the architecture, the result is a gentler building to the city.

 

The structure in reinforced concrete and masonry is unique. A prefabricated slab panel system, which functions similarly to a slab, allows the absence of beams in the front and rear edge, which makes the facade visually lighter.

 

The choice of a palette of discreet colors: - white, black and gray; and honest materials: - concrete and wood; highlights the design of the architecture and shows the relationship of light and shadow.

 

Cozy and provocative this small building stands out for the proportionality of form and the architectural simplicity.
