Upstate São Paulo’s inexperienced nature, rolling hills and smaller, sleepy cities supply respite to many São Paulo residents who’ve second properties there. This was additionally the case with YJD Home, a countryside weekend residence for a household that was after a spot to flee the large metropolis. Designed by Jacobsen Arquitetura, the home gives simply that – a dramatic, but minimalist upstate São Paulo retreat that enables the attention to journey and the soul to chill out inside a backdrop of inexperienced nature, which the design places centre stage.
The home is conceived as three, seemingly unbiased pavilions, that are in actual fact related via a sequence of pathways and coated routes. This helps the inside be divided into two major sections – the principle home, which is break up into a non-public and extra entertaining-orientated pavilion, and the visitor home. This association additionally makes the pretty beneficiant construction – at over 2,000 sq m – really feel lighter and extra permeable, sitting softly on its land and feeling much less intrusive in opposition to the greenery. From afar, this seems like a one-storey home, however upon nearer inspection, two ranges are revealed.
Benefiting from the location’s enviable place and pure panorama, the architects positioned the constructing on high of a hill, permitting lengthy views from each level in the home.
