Residential Architecture: House 13 by Atria Arquitetos: “..a family residence that points out the contrast among the simplicity of the shapes and the richness of the spaces and materials. The architectural design approach searches for privacy to the intimate areas of the house, as well as full integration of internal social areas, leisure spaces in the outside and the garden itself. The building has a steel concrete structure, two stories, and is located in a residential neighborhood in Brasília. The ground floor has differences in level that accommodate the house to the terrain’s natural slope..The main access is through the side of the house, by an enormous wooden pivoting door that leads to the core of the house, a double height space naturally lightened by a pergola with glazed roof. This space stands out for its monumentality and for the contrast of rough materials (cement floor)and noble materials (travertine marble panel)..” Extensive glazing, natural light, skylights, wooden slat shutters, privacy, indoor/outdoor and materials sensibility..
