Located in an Atlantic Forest reserve on the coast of the state of São Paulo, the Tijucopava House by AMZ Arquitetos is a warm home that welcomes the sea view. More, the wild landscapes are exuberantly unfolding in the surroundings.
An impressive wooden structure (measuring 4.5 x 3.75 m), profiled by a glass frame, has been installed on a steep slope. The natural structure can be defined in two parts: the monolithic concrete base supporting the garage and the part that shapes the pool on top of it.
On the upper floor, each module in the structure integrates one of the bedrooms and its en-suite bathroom. Continuous rooflights provide natural light and ventilation for the sleeping area.
The wall-less characteristic of the residence has been completed by the lower floor’s glass doors that make the outdoors totally slid open, turning the social zone into a large terrace with a rather loose layout. In addition, the stone pavement extends down to the external area and the pool.
The modern interior and the natural landscape are brought together in this fluid indoor-outdoor transition given by large glass walls and doors.
