House Atenas by Atelier C2H.a

Designed by architects Fernanda Castilho, Ivan Cassola and Rafael Haiashida, partners of C2H.a Arquitetura, Casa Atenas is located in Alphaville – São Paulo and was conceived to be a contemporary refuge with integrated environments, abundant light, natural ventilation and landscaping with exuberant tropical vegetation. photography by Ana Helena Lima.


From the outside in, the façade is one of the project’s greatest highlights, the brises. In addition to being an aesthetic element, bringing movement and contrast, they work as a shutter for the balcony doors of the bedrooms, located on the second floor.

The program, in fact, was sectored based on the uses, integrating the social area with the leisure area – composed of pool and garden -, leaving the most intimate spaces with more privacy from the street. It also has three entrances, one main entrance through the garden and a view of the backyard (to receive guests), another secondary, with access through the garage for daily use, and a third service entrance.

On the first floor, the dining room is in dialogue with the gourmet kitchen and the external veranda, and can easily be integrated with the living room, making it more dynamic for the family and more intelligent when receiving friends for various types of events, from informal ones, where the gourmet kitchen can be used, to more formal events, with the internal kitchen being used.

On this floor is also the playroom (on the veranda extension), designed so that the children could play in full view of their parents. The home office was designed to provide privacy for the residents and has a beautiful view of the outside of the house.

In the pool area, a small beach with a wooden deck receives futons and loungers on sunny days, while the landscaping blends into the pool, permeating it on its sides.
