Pirajá House is a project designed by ESTUDIO BRA. A roof turned into a slab garden. Belonging to the third generation of the same family, this house in the city of Sao Paulo was renovated to receive the new residents, a young couple and their dog. The overly compartmentalized spaces with low lighting and low ceiling did not meet expectations.
Incorporating the site’s dynamic landscape into the daily life of its residents, the [Bracketed Space] House is designed by MF Architecture as a meaningfully-framed procession through the property with nuanced natural lighting throughout. A continuous and jogging retaining wall from outside to inside embeds the structure below natural grade at the front with flush transitions at its rear facade. All indoor spaces open up to a courtyard which terraces down to the tree canopy, creating a readily visible and occupiable transitional space between man-made and nature.
ZA House is a project designed by Shachar Rozenfeld Architects. The villa which was built in Irus village Israel, has a footprint of 340 sqm. on a 500 sqm. The home’s shape consists of two rectangular masses, stacked on top of each other and differentiated by materials, rotation and size.
Pine Tree is SAOTA’s first project to be completed in Miami. SAOTA’s design DNA is derived from the South African way of living which places an emphasis on the outdoors as people live both in and through their homes. Captivated by the Miami climate and landscape potential the design embodies these principles; creating a landscape of experiences.
