+ Architect’s statement by Progetto Arquitetura
+What was the guideline of the project?
The guideline was to promote a maximum integration between the internal and the external areas, using a contemporary language.
+Please comment the implementation of the Project in the site area.
The idea behind the implementation of the house in the site area was to put the leisure area in the spotlight and also to enhance its integration with the residence.
+How do the distribution of the environments and the articulation of the spaces occur?
The environments are distributed in three levels. In the first one, there is the social and leisure area. In the top two there are the dorms and the private areas. The access is through two stairs (social and service) and by one elevator.
+Talk about the structure
The structure is all metallic and we put the ceiling height as a priority together with maximizing the openness of the interspaces.
+Some consideration on the insulation and ventilation
There are elements that along with the casings turn possible to control sunlight incidence even without the sun. Its generous interspaces allow a very good air circulation.
