200 sq m House Integrated with Nature by FCstudio, São Paulo

About FCstudio

Property of 200 m² establishes several types of relation with the environment.

This 200 sq m house integrated with nature in a low verticalization neighborhood in São Paulo was designed by a young architect to become his own home. The main challenge was to build a corner building, with two facades leaning against the neighbors, that took full advantage of the land and natural light without impeding the privacy of the resident.

According to the professionals of FCstudio, an office that signs the architectural project, including lighting, interiors and construction, the house with metallic structure establishes several types of relation with the environment.

The ground floor can open fully so that the tropical landscaping of the land integrates into the internal space, where the boundary between interior and exterior is diluted. The entire floor is free of barriers, except for the kitchen and toilet, which function as a "functional island" separating the areas.

The opposite happens on the upper floor, where the facade can be opened or fully closed by steel doors with electrostatic painting that block the direct solar incidence and preserve intimacy, acoustically isolating the intimate area and ensuring the intense natural ventilation.

Already the garden on the terrace of the property allows the observation of sunrise and sunset and enjoy the view of the surroundings from a high point in a neighborhood composed only of low houses. In addition, the green roof contributes to the maintenance of the temperature balance inside the house, and heating of water is done with solar panels.
