Casa Moema

Tria Arquitetura as Architects

When the young couple approached the office to renovate the original house from the 1970s, they wanted to maintain, in some way, the memory of the house and take advantage of the existing structures.

The original structure of the living room, kitchen and bedrooms worked well and was maintained, however, all environments had their doorways and enlarged to allow more lighting and natural ventilation. The back of the house was the area that underwent the most changes; the existing room was demolished and made space for a covered barbecue area with a toilet and service area, and also gained an outdoor seating area with a garden. To integrate the barbecue and bring more green to the internal area of ​​the house, a glass panel was created in the kitchen, which is also the dining room. In this way, as soon as you enter the house, you notice the garden at the back of the house and the environments gain amplitude. The element that unites all environments and maintains the house's memory is the original brick that, when peeled along the entire length of the house, exposes a little of the house's history with the old conduit paths and the age of the construction.

On the upper floor, a bathroom was created for the second bedroom and the master bedroom became a suite. The lower floor covering slab was transformed into a small private veranda.

Except for the brick that was kept, all the floor, wall and window coverings were replaced, bringing identity and contemporaneity to the house.
