Modern Residence Showcasing a Seemingly Unstable Architecture : SN House in Brazil
SN House was designed by Studio Guilherme Torres and displays an intriguing architecture, due to its original volumetry and large spans without any pillar support. The residence is located in Londrina, Brazil and was especially developed for a large family who love to have many guests in the week-ends. According to the architects, “the construction brings straight, pure and simple forms. Contrasting with the white masonry, stone and wood coatings have the power to warm the look without breaking the contemporary twist of the proposal. The independent functioning between the two storeys was another right solution. On a daily basis, the life of the family is concentrated on the upper floor, which hosts the bedrooms, the kitchen, a living and dining room, all accessed by the side ramp and garage on the upper hall. But on weekends, they enjoy receiving the large family in meetings on the spacious and comfortable leisure area with pool, garden, barbecue gourmet and two generous lounges“. Sustainability features of this home include solar heating systems and rainwater capture for various purposes.
