Glass House

Attending a low budget, the owner's skills as a carpenter and locksmith were of great importance and fundamental to become the project feasible, where the constructive elements that guided it were entirely executed by the owner, for example: the frames, metal structures and wooden ceiling.

With a functional and intuitive sectorization, the house is arranged on the ground in 3 blocks that are articulated to form an internal patio.Once you enter the plot, the first impression is given by the living room. The high ceiling summed to the glass closures, clearly delimit the vertical and horizontal planes, resulting in a unique feeling for the user that the roof, designed in a metallic structure and wooden lining, seems to float above the construction.

Taking advantage of the natural resources available, the bedrooms faces the west side to the internal patio, strategically aiming to release the heat and enjoy naturals lighting and ventilation, besides that, the intimate transit is permeated by a french window facing the lest side which enable the sunlight to illuminate the area in the morning as well as a crossed ventilation there. The permeability, guarantee the pleasant views for the external patio.

In the block behind the plot, are placed: the gourmet area, also seeking to provide permeability and views for the patio; toilet and bathroom in the suite that have a zenith opening which ensure natural lighting and ventilation to the ambient.
 The support and services rooms are located in the southern area, separated from the main entrance to the house and front setback by a delimitative laundry´s wall in wich complements the façade's volumetry and also provide direct access to the kitchen.
