House in Joanopolis

This beautiful Joanopolis House was projected by the brazilian firm "una arquitectos". this Joanopolis Houses is integrated in the landscape following the slope exalting the virtues and protecting it from the nearby buildings. The building is like a continuum line that folds structuring the house and forming three courtyards which create a relationship between the different areas of the house.

The house was designed for friends. a farm two kilometers away where we built a pavilion in 2002. The region is located at the foot of the one thousand feet high Mantiqueira Mountain, on the border of São Paulo and Minas Gerais states.

From the street you only see a white tower that protects the infrastructures (kitchen, ovens, fireplace, etc) and a horizontal rectangle of 8 x 40 meters covered with a roof garden. The parking is between the street and the house level from where you can reach the roof garden or go down through a short tunnel to the courtyard of the living room.

The living areas are arranged around the fireplace and the oven separated by the kitchen. During the day these areas are completely open, becoming a large balcony, and are closed at night, maintaining the transparency. In the rooms there are mobile wood panels to darken the environments.
