Brazilian architect Coletivo Arquitetos recently has designed the L House. Architectural design of a house that the general plan develops in “L”, comprising two volumes directed to the central recreation area, the north and the forest. The garage volume frame the landscape for those who arrive while the master volume rests on the first, inviting the shipment.
The hall, at the same time it is the connecting element between the two volumes and its two floors, is precisely the separation between them due to the transparency of glass in your locks, reinforced by the empty feeling. Crossing the bridge, there is the access to the intimate area, which is based on the glass living room, seeming lightness and ensures shading and weather protection.
At the bottom floor, the deck and balcony integrate parts of the house together and around the recreation area. The kitchen and barbecue share proximity and are strategically located to serve the whole house. At dusk, the house acquires a translucent and soft light, like a Japanese lantern, through the vertical slatted wood panels of the superior volume, while the lower floor, though transparent, still shielded from view of passersby on the street.
