* Residential Architecture: JE House by Humberto Hermeto

Residential Architecture: JE House by Humberto Hermeto: “..In an irregular terrain with 3160 sqm, we needed to incorporate two uses: The first one, a big residence, with five suites, generous living and leisure spaces, in addition to the service dependencies. The second, a large gallery for the owner, an art enthusiast..The shape of the site, at first glance a complicating factor for its irregular form, guided the project. In the existing vertical gap (10 meters in total), the first action: different uses in different levels..In the lower level, the gallery, the stereotomic volume. With the need for an air-conditioned closed space, the volume arises from the ground like a big rock, a big platform..the residence is distributed under a continuous roof (81 meters), constituted by a reinforced concrete portico. This portico sets the residence´s built volume..The existing views guide the various openings: from every room one sees the mountains..”  Extensive glazing, natural light and views, indoor/outdoor sensibility..
