Fazenda Lajinha

Best Project of Private Residence

About the project (provided by the applicant)
At our office, we strive to infuse each project with a strong, meaningful concept. Fazenda Lajinha embodies this philosophy, drawing inspiration from the essence of family. The client sought a space on their farm that would serve as a gathering place, and we responded with a circular house that opens to the landscape while embracing a central core for family interactions. This design symbolizes both connection with nature and a sanctuary for creating cherished memories.
The circular floor plan provides diverse views of the surroundings, including the pasture, orchard, and lake. The roof, with its expansive eaves, is designed to shield the house from harsh sunlight. Strategically inclined to the west, it enhances protection while allowing morning sunlight to enter through carefully positioned openings.
Inside, the spacious atrium encourages interaction and communal living, while the clear separation of social and private areas ensures harmony and privacy.
