Casa Malota Jundiai

The flat terrain of generous dimensions is located in a very wooded region with preserved areas of native forest, very close to Serra do Japi. Considered a national heritage due to its biodiversity, this mountain is home to an extensive reserve of Atlantic Forest.

Observations of this exuberant environment were fundamental for the general direction of the project, which started from the premise of a single-story house that was positioned in such a way as not to remove any existing trees, and harmoniously coexist with the local nature.

As a reference to the natural permeability of the treetops, we made a series of gaps in the roof slab, totaling 14 gaps. These gaps allow the entry of sun and wind and the creation of gardens inside the house, in addition to generating interesting contrasts of light and shade and allowing views of the treetops.

The volumetry is composed of four blocks. Longitudinally, there are: the service block, the intimate pavilion for the bedrooms and the TV room and the sauna block. Positioned transversely, in a more prominent way is the social block with higher ceilings and that houses the living rooms and the kitchen. The social, intimate, and sauna blocks are interconnected by a metal structure roof that protects the bedroom veranda and the barbecue veranda.

As soon as you pass through the social gate, what you see are two blocks fitted together, with different materials, one of which houses the garage covered in gray mass and with a bottom of concrete slats fitted under a larger white box. And right in the center, there is a large glazed area that allows the view of the bottom of the land. This central transparency aims to generate curiosity and surprise to the visitor, inviting him to enter.

For those who see the house from the back, the biggest highlight is the roof in a metallic structure painted in black with wood-finished lining. Due to its elongated and “L” shape, this cover brings a dynamic movement to the facade and ends up “hiding” behind the sauna block, which is coated with the same gray mass that covers the garage box. Under this cover, there are sliding panels made of perforated sheet metal to provide greater privacy and control of solar incidence in the bedrooms.

The simple materiality of a few elements such as the black of the metal roof and windows, the concrete and the gray and white tone of the external paint, is also brought to the choice of internal finishes. The unity of the internal spaces is obtained through the choice of the same woody pattern for the floor, ceiling and MDF of the custom furniture, a single pattern of porcelain tiles and by choices that refer to the external finishes for the countertops, such as the gray granite of the bathrooms that refers to concrete and black granite, which refers to the black tone of the windows and metal roof.
