The House ACP, designed by Candida Tabet Arquitectura and completed last year (2016), is located on a semi-circle-shaped plot of land in Indaiatuba, Brazil that is a single story tall and features a mezzanine — acting as a featured social area — and an annex playroom house for the two children of the couple who this house was designed and built for. The building’s orientation helps maximize the views of the beautiful surrounding environment, as well as showcase the ciruclation of the interior spaces, while the double-height of the mezzanine’s great cieling promotes cross-ventilation (allowing the hot air to do what it does best; RISE).
The structure of House ACP house is composed of the striped pattern of sutainable Cumaru wood for the porches and beams, while the roof consists of processed boards and waterproof membrane to allow faster construction while averting from using water. The house’s interior white walls contrasts with the exterior’s yellowish Camaru wood, and the interior floor is finished with a light-grey color of concrete, while the fireplace and stairs are mad eof dark steel.
The overall design of the house reinterprets the familiar interaction of the interior and exterior with the use of a pool located next to a glass curtain wall on the house’s facade, which changes the living room into a sizable terrace space when the wall is folded-up and overlooks the surrounding environment.
