City:FlorianópolisCountry:BrazilMore SpecsLess SpecsSave this picture!© Bebete ViégasText description provided by the architects. This house is the second project we´ve made for friends (the first one was a house in Joinville, where they live). Located on the south part of the island, facing the sea, at Morro das Pedras beach, the site is in a condominium of small plots of land.Save this picture!© Bebete ViégasSave this picture!Details AxonometricSave this picture!Courtesy of Una ArquitetosHouse is completely opened at ground floor level, as a shadow to outdoor activities. It extends towards the swimming pool area, shelters eating and hammocks rooms, connecting horizontally streets, garden and sea. Vertically, a double height hall connects both living rooms.Save this picture!© Bebete ViégasAll hydraulic installations are concentrated on the small masonry block. On the ground floor: laundry, woodstove, surf boards and beach equipment deposits. On the upper level, bathrooms and kitchen. This volume also contains a staircase that steers towards the facilities bellow, access level and bedrooms and living room above. This opaque construction protects house from strong west sun and from neighbours’ views. Furthermore it is supports timber structure_ all of that made of garapeira wood.Save this picture!Courtesy of Una ArquitetosThe timber structure (15 tons) weighs less than 10% of total concrete volume (115 tons), even with an area 4 times larger. House was designed in pre-fabricated wood in order to induce less impact on the site and ensure quality and low cost of the work. Because of the distance, this assembly was also a strategy to ensure precision at work.Save this picture!© Bebete ViégasLocal builders made all production, pre-fabrication and assembling of structure. Conception of columns reinforces idea of a suspended house, reducing base points and concentrating foundations. This strategy further expands the terrace out.Save this picture!Courtesy of Una ArquitetosConstruction thought as assembly: timber floor in horizontal plans, metallic panels with insulating thermo-acoustic on the roof, plaster panels indoors, wooden window frames and glass as sealing. Save this picture!Ground Floor PlanSave this picture!First Floor PlanEntire upper volume is surrounded by a translucent plastic protection that resists salt air, stops excessive sun and south winds that carries sand, the same that forms dunes on the beach. This element allows the passage of controlled light and permanent ventilation. A horizontal tear in the eye level establishes a direct visual connection with the sea, a compliment to the horizon, as opposed to a small fold in the main facade of the plan. At night, light is reversed and the house exudes radiance, as a small beacon.Save this picture!© Bebete ViégasProject gallerySee allShow less30-Hectare–Olive Grove Converted to Eco-Friendly Public Housing DevelopmentArchitecture NewsThe 4th Gymnasium / Paul de Ruiter ArchitectsSelected Projects Share CopyHouses•Florianópolis, Brazil House in Florianópolis / Una Arquitetos “COPY” 2016 Save this picture!© Bebete Viégas+ 25 Share CopyAbout this officeUNA ArquitetosOfficeFollowProductWood#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesFlorianopolisBrazilPublished on December 30, 2016Cite: “House in Florianópolis / Una Arquitetos” [House in Florianópolis / Una Arquitetos] 30 Dec 2016.
