Orange House

Best Implemented Project of Private Residence

About the project
This house was designed to function as a «club», according to the premises of the owner, who lives in it with his two children – teenagers at the time. Located in a condominium in Piracicaba, Sao Paulo, the residency program was developed around the passions of the residents, wine and music. Arranged along a site of 808,92 m², the project was planned on 3 floors, in order to take advantage of the natural slope of the land. On the lower floor — ground floor for the garage entrance, there are the service equipment, sauna and locker room for the pool, as well as a mechanical workshop / home office and a wine cellar. In the owner's words “a cave”.
To contrast with the dark stone, the idea came to change the specification of the room's brise soleil, which were originally made of wood, to orange-colored metal protection. This tone ended up becoming the signature of this project, being replicated on the dining table, Fifties, produced especially for him in orange corian.
