PROJECT SIGNED BY M MAGALHÃES ESTÚDIO EMPHASIZES THE MEMORY OF THE HOUSE OF THE 50'S WITH A NEW PROGRAM NEAR NATURE
The original house from the 50s, in Vila Mariana - São Paulo, still preserved elements from the time of its construction. With this project full of memories, M Magalhães Estúdio, which is headed by architect Maria Magalhães, printed new perceptions and perspectives on the new project to emphasize the existing architecture with a more integrated and broad program for the family to enjoy leisure time.
The result is a project that has its set as a differential. An old and poorly preserved house, which has been transformed into a dream home for a family with three young children. For that, it was necessary to integrate the ground floor environments, to restore the existing elements bringing this story back and, the great challenge, to create a third floor that would be used by the children.
This new floor, with a dreamed room for children to play, gained the addition of a load to an existing and old structure, with a new roof made from reinforcements and metallic structure.
As the clients had the desire for the children to grow up very close to nature, the roof gained large pots with fruit trees and the space was thought along with the landscaping, bringing nature close to the family's routine. The hall gained a wide area, lighted, ventilated and with a wonderful view to a square (a dream for those who live in São Paulo), and it became everyone's favorite place.
The new perceptions and looks are some of the most interesting parts of the architecture of the house. In the living room, the wall was peeled and the brick of the original building was exposed, valuing its history and bringing a contemporary identity to the new home. A restoration work was carried out on the sober access stairway to the second floor, removing the painting and rediscovering the beautiful original pink granilite of the house.
The original materials discovered predominate, such as the brick wall in the room or the original wooden floor, which was maintained. In order to compose with the existing ones, a cementitious painting was used in the living room, in the kitchen and on the roof.
The integration of the environments on the ground floor, as in the roof, was a solution to improve the functionality of the project as a whole and cross ventilation helped to improve the thermal comfort of the house.
