Boaçava House is entitled, it resides in Sao Paolo, Brazil and it has has been envisioned by Una Arquitetos in 2011. Boaçava House is a project that nestles the residential program in a rigid volume, a strong presence in an exposed concrete home prepared to amaze.
The volumes are left bare, the texture of the concrete dominating perspectives with the bold heavy aspect. One volume in the composition has been indirectly colored through iron oxide pigmentation, a solution that can stand the test of time without affecting the strong textures chosen.
The urban industrial decor of the home is cushioned only through natural means, greenery embellishes the home`s small yard while indoors extraordinary textures of wood are balancing with coziness and warmth the spaces. Interior walls remain rigid too, pure, honest with they materiality.
“wood floor connects this level since the entrance until the pool, bending itself inside the living room.”
The site offers extraordinary views and the home is positioned to take advantage of them from the intimate courtyard realized in the back. Contrast is present through out the home’s multiple levels, situated on the first floor the bedrooms contrast greatly with the ground level :
” It indicates some intimacy, views from these rooms are mediated by reentrant balconies. These extractions ensure diagonal views, multiple light and ventilation accesses emphasizing the sun’s path.”
The establishment is bold and rampant and it can bring to one`s mind the fast-paced aggressive state of the urban environment. In this context alone the home is subdued to its surroundings, a setting in which greenery thrives, a setting in which development pulls the rug from nature`s feet.
What do you think about this exposed concrete home by Una Arquitectos? The position it takes is certainly bold, unique and somehow justified. We would love to hear your opinion on the establishment in the comment section below.
