SM House by Mauro Lacio Arquitetura

September 30, 2016

The SM house is a unifamiliar residence located in São Paulo, Brazil. The challenges to its implatation were connected to a 3 meters ground depression between the extremes of the lot. This enabled the communication among the house and the horizon. Composed by one concrete box which lifts the construction to the baseline of the street, solving the unevenness of the ground and giving contrast to the metal glass box that holds the social area resulting in integrated ambients, speaking directly to the outdoors, through the glass panels.

The top of the house consists in the intimate part of the couple and their two children. The idea was to create a lath-wooded-box, which allows the filtering of the daylight and the creation of transparency at night, without the loss of privacy. The volumes open and close according to their uses. Privacy and socializing alternates in empty and full, light and opacity.
