Casa Rouxinol

Best Project of Private Residence

About the project
Aimed at the Jaguari Dam, in a land of two thousand sq.m which is quite rugged, with 50 meters of unevenness and with more than 300 registered trees, the biggest challenge of the project was to implement the building under these conditions with minimal impact to the environment. The starting point of the project was to create a cyclopean concrete base, made with local labor, and a structural system of engineered wood, where the beam and column are made of GLULAM (glued laminated timber) and the slab is made of CLT (cross laminated timber) Designed with nine modules of 3.60 meters that are repeated in both directions and in the ceiling height, the house had its program divided into three sectors, interconnected by a vertical circulation with a metallic structure: above is the access and services sector; the middle sector houses the suites and a private room; and the social sector is on the lowest floor. Also, in the space of the concrete basement, there is a workshop and a storage space.
