The busy day-to-day life in the big urban centers drives families to seek a haven for tranquility on the weekends. Luckily, the land chosen within a farm, in the interior of São Paulo, concentrated a series of positive aspects for the design of the project: views, large land, a good solar orientation, generous setbacks, high soil permeability, absence of currency walls. However, a requirement in the condominium regulation related to the houses’ roof, caught the residents by surprise.
24 7 Arquitetura: Casa Haras came up as a pavilion installation consisting of 3 volumes: two parallels, with NE-SW orientation and a third perpendicular connecting with NW-SE orientation, as an “H”. The idea was based on the desire to have the central leisure area in the other spaces of the house, and with the proposed implantation, we were able to create two outdoor living areas: a main one with a deck and a swimming pool and a secondary area with a spa, a water mirror and a bonfire separated by the perpendicular volume and visually connected by the transparency of the sliding glass doors.
The pavilion of the main facade receives basically the distribution of the service area and the garage, and is also where the social access of the house happens. A glass door on the main facade reveals the entrance hall where a stone wall in the background can be seen, as well as the wooden panels on the sides, which conceal a cellar and a cloakroom for visitors.
The central pavilion, glazed on both sides, concentrates a huge social area with dining room and a large living room with fireplace, providing a feeling of full insertion to the leisure area of the house.
Lastly, the third pavilion concentrates the most intimate wing with 4 suites and a tv room. The external balcony, common to all rooms, allows a more direct circulation to the rooms of the house, since it eliminates the need to transit through the internal corridor, which makes the circulation more dynamic and the house more integrated to the leisure.
