Fernanda Marques realized a private residence in Porto Feliz, São Paulo, that emphasizes its integration with the landscape through a lightweight structure with large openings and glazed surfaces.
The architecture stands out for its contemporary language and structural boldness. Measuring 700m², the steel framed house follows the shape of the terrain. The spaces, in turn, were laid out so as to offer a view of the lake and the golf course from every single on.
The whole façade is made from seamless sliding panes. Few and refined materials, such as wood, stone and glass reaffirm the project’s essentiality and lightness. Given the plentiful daylight most of the spaces were fitted with zenithal lighting, while the cross ventilation system throughout the living area, combined with the fully-opening panes, create a seamless transition between indoors and outdoors and provide excellent ventilation conditions.
