Townhouse in Sao Paulo | Affonso Risi Arquiteto
Townhouse on a slope,with a length of 50m long but wit a narrow 9.90 m width along the street.
The size of the project are controlled by the Golden Proportion and the Fibonacci Series.
At the entry level, one meter above the sidewalk, is a Balcony / shelter for cars, studio stairs on the water surface with carp.
The whole program is developed in house level. It was created a void between the two bodies of the deck to reduce the appearance of long, narrow building. In it is the stairs.
Particular attention was paid to lighting, whether natural or artificial.Greater integration with the outside world, "bringing" street trees for the landscape of the room, koi pond bottom into the studio and garden.
The house seems bigger than it is. There is a roof terrace, accessible by the extension of the stairs. The block that contains the area close to the rooms in red, shown as "attachment" of white volumes of the rest of the building.
