Designed by 4d-Arquitetura, this family house is located in a gated community from Guaíba, Brasil, where walls and fences are not allowed. That is way the design was developed in three parallel horizontal bars that protects terrain sides, granting privacy to its residents.
The central block has two floors: on the ground floor are the social areas at the center – living, dinner and leisure. At second floor, with access by a linear loose ladder, is located the private area. A big mezzanine makes the two floor integration, giving the space higher amplitude. A footbridge crosses the mezzanine, leading to the master bedroom, while the other rooms are on the other end of the floor. via
