This house, placed at Itamambuca beach, has its starting point on the context and the program. Close to the seashore and surrounded by a dense and rich rainforest vegetation, the site pointed towards a simple conceptual insight. The clients, in addition, brought a sense to occupy the space in the most integrated way.The project defines itself aligning two different inputs that arose from these desires. First, a racional square shaped concrete slab that defines with clarity a floor to lean on and a roof to protect.Save this picture!© Nelson KonThe ground floor lifts slightly from the natural terrain and presents itself as step up towards the common space or eventually a bench to enjoy nature. The upper slab combines structural techniques with the fluidity of the space created in between and the intent of bringing in the natural insolation, ventilation and the rainforest environment.Save this picture!© Nelson KonThe upper slab, an inverted prism with all of its columns on the borders, are placed simetrically allowing the openess towards all the directions enhancing the permanent connection in between nature and shelter throughout all the common space.Save this picture!PlansIn a cozy and private atmosphere, the inward areas are combined in a simple and gentle precast wooden structure that lays on top of the concrete slab as if it was just another piece of carefully chosen furniture that composes the whole.Save this picture!© Nelson KonProject gallerySee allShow lessSpurred by Privatization, Beirut’s Working Class is Colonizing the City’s PeripheryArticlesZaha Hadid Celebrated in Latest Google DoodleArchitecture News Share CopyHouses•Praia do Itamambuca, Brazil ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/872470/itamabuca-house-gui-mattos Clipboard Area: 450 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project Projects Houses ArchDaily 2016 Architects: Gui Mattos Area Area of this architecture project Save this picture!© Nelson Kon+ 13 Share CopyAbout this officeGui MattosOfficeFollowProductsWoodConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesPraia do ItamambucaBrazilPublished on May 31, 2017Cite: “Itamabuca House / Gui Mattos” 31 May 2017.
