Yucatan House


This house is located in lush, green Sao Paula, Brazil for a family with three young children.  Their requirements included displaying their art collection in bright and informal spaces.  The resulting design is seven clearly articulated rectangular volumes.  These shift asymmetrically across the site and create a series of outdoor rooms that provide for open-air programs and activities.

What I find most compelling in this project is the raw, honest use of a clear material palette.  The polished concrete floors contrast with the rustic wood floors and ceilings, while the pure glass openings contrast with the unrefined cast concrete walls.  This mix of materials come together to artistically create a home, that is warm, open and family friendly.
