Sergio Sampaio - Maria & Jose House, Itú SP, Brazil

Today´s newsletter is dedicated to Maria & José House. Located in Itú, in the interior of São Paulo state, the project was designed by Sergio Sampaio. The clients, an elderly couple with four children, asked for a single storey house, but the terrain has a slope of 8 meters. Based on that premises, Sampaio proposed a black prism partially sit on the ground, where the house can be easily accessed, but supported by piloties in the lower side. A central courtyard, with an adjacent ramp on one side, communicates both levels.

Rosenbaum Arquitetura + Aleph Zero - Fazenda Canuanã, Formoso do Araguaia TO, Brazil

Today´s newsletter features a very special project: Fazenda Canuanã is a boarding shool promoted by Bradesco Foundation. Located in Brazil´s mid-west rural area, this building is considered the largest wood construction in Latin America and houses 540 children. The social movement A Gente Transforma invited Rosenbaum and Aleph Zero to develop the project though a participant methodology, not exempt from innovation. Besides the use of laminated timber structures made with certified wood, in the construction process a variety of local techniques were applied, like adobe bricks or straw weaving, while the landscape desing was based on local species. As Rosenbaum put it: “The experience in Formoso do Araguaia proves that the wisdom of indigenous people and caboclos in the construction and occupation of spaces are a heritage of what makes us Brazilian.”

Jacobsen Arquitetura - RLW House, Guarujá SP, Brazil

Today´s newsletter is focused on Jacoben Arquitetura´s RLW House. Located in Guarujá, this beach house takes advantage of its natural terrain, which has a pronounced slope close to 45% and is immersed in dense native vegetation. The result is a five-storey staggered construction supported by pilotis. On the ground floor a solid prism houses the access and garage. The second level is destined for outdoor family activities. On the next level a wooden volume contains the bedrooms. From the fourth floor, with the social areas and pool, one can enjoy the main views of the sea. Finally, the top level contains a solarium.

Masswerk Architekten - Feuerwehr und Werkhofgebäude Eichenspes, Kriens, Switzerland

Today´s newsletter features a mixed use building located in Kriens, in the outskirts of Luzern. Designed by Masswerk Architekten, the Feuerwehr und Werkhofgebäude Eichenspes houses a fire station, classrooms and a factory. The shape of the building shows the tension between the different architectural programs. Both the roof and the sloped plot were used to manage that tension, resulting in a compact multi scalar building.
