A COUNTRYSIDE HOUSE SIGNED BY GILDA MEIRELLES ARQUITETURA MIX NATURAL MATERIALS AND INTEGRATES WITH THE FOREST

Located near São Paulo City, on a 9,000 m² area and with a long view of the surroundings, the JG HOUSE is a project signed by Gilda Meirelles Arquitetura. Made for a couple with many people and grandchildren, the purpose of the new home was to bring the family together for moments of leisure.

 

Based on an implantation aimed to enhance the twoperspectives of the land– one of themfacing a forest reserve - the house structurecomprises large and integrated rooms, terrace and barbecue area for the family to spend most of the time, tv room, a suite with office, two bathrooms for the couple, four suites for the children and / or guests and two other large rooms to accommodate the children.

 

The course taken was then to create warm and pleasant environments, creating a functional circulation even with such a large built area. This was solved by creatingseveralblocksinterconnected by a glazed gallery that overlooks the green throughout the route.

 

The use of materials that integrate with nature and the country house climatepredominates in this project, such as the use of wood in the frames and coverings, the natural stone on the facade, the clay tile and a lot of glass to give transparency and connect the house to the external area.

 

Material Used :
1. Wooden Windows frames - Mado 
2. Lighting - Lumini
