Beautiful Beach House Interior with Suspended Staircase


Built in Ubatuba, on the coast of São Paulo, the elegant architecture house with Anderson Muniz design combines marble and cumaru drawn at right angles.

It is one thing to have art at home, another is to make it a structural element. So it is this beautiful beach house interior with suspended staircase created by the architect Anderson Muniz in Itamambuca Beach, in Ubatuba, on the coast of São Paulo. The 1100 m² of construction already make a good impact - accompanied by sawn marble flooring, cumaru panels, double height ceilings and an internal area that extends outwards like a root looking for the sun.

Here, at the center of all this, on the ground floor, next to the living and the gourmet area, there is still a staircase like never before seen, designed by designer Hugo França. "When I invited him to draw it, he was so excited that the next day he called and told what he imagined for the place," says Anderson. And the idea was quite bold - why not a log around which the steps would be set? The assembly required a metal pin that, inserted in the center of the black angico, crosses the lining. Even though it is all tied up, it is an organic and light element in the heart of the house.





"The first step was to find a fallen tree in the region, for which we have the collaboration of Gaúcho, a partner who lives in Itamambuca and knows the local biome very well." After a month, we located in the Atlantic Forest a monumental Red Angelim, organic forms and robust structure, "explains Hugo França. "It was the biggest interior piece I ever produced and the second ladder I designed, a challenge for me, because using a very organic structure and a ladder that needs to have geometric steps in its surroundings is not an easy task."

There were still some final details of the project to be carried out, but neither did the anxiety of the couple of owners, with their children and grandchildren, who decided to open the house during the holiday season in 2017. This true center of family reunion already had everything they needed, including a ladder-shaped sculpture. Or vice versa.

Anderson designed the six suites - four upstairs and two downstairs - and the home theater pretty much the same size. "Here, I did not want to use this old story master suite, they are all the same," says the architect. In the kitchen, several members of the family of Bahian origin take turns with the pleasure of performing good dishes and savoring them around a large table and then spreading out on comfortable sofas and armchairs, almost all made to measure .

The eyes see an elegant, silent architecture, with slabs advancing on both floors, giving space a unique personality. But the house is contemporary beyond what one can see. Fully automated, its controls can be operated from a distance, from the opening of the curtains to the pool's whirlpool.

To accomplish the work, architect and owner opted for a metal structure, which accelerates the execution time and does not generate waste. There was a house on the ground, it's true, it was totally demolished. All that was left of it was donated and reused, from the rubbish (quite useful for landfills) to the wooden frame. The local laws of an area of ​​environmental protection are strict, and finding the right land does not mean being able to buy it. Hence the option to acquire the property and "disassemble" it to erect a new dwelling.

Anderson Muniz is now working on a new stage: to make the house energy-saving from a photovoltaic panels, a plan still under development. Surfer and capoeirista, he is part of a generation for which all this is already very natural. With the Itamambuca project in progress, he eventually settled in Ubatuba with his wife and two children. Their design, as well as their lifestyle, are proof that ethics and aesthetics can indeed make a marriage happy.
