A house idealized as a weekend house by nature for a writer and a plastic artist, with the possibility of  becoming a  permanent home. Also can accommodate well the adults son and daughter with children when the family gathers. Erected in a slightly undulated terrain, atypical for the region, with the generous area of 14.366,93m², with existing plateaus and a lake, the program included an arts studio for the owner, which was built over an existing concrete foundation measuring 30,00mx6,50m, reminiscences of an old barm, in the lower part of the lot.Save this picture!© André NazarethThe main house was placed over an existing plateau in the highest point of the lot, over a slight promontory, to take the best views to the woods and the mountains, and maximize sunlight, vital in mountain climate. It is a single level house protected by a ubiquitous overhanging roof that keeps the house free from moisture. Respecting existing trees and the shape of the existing plateau, the house was divided into three volumes, the pavilionar living room, flanked by two volumes containing the suites, that were slightly twisted to improve the views and fit harmoniously in the plateau, resulting in an architecture integrated with the surrounding landscape.Save this picture!© André NazarethSave this picture!PlanSave this picture!© André NazarethThe frontal varanda that embraces the whole living room is covered by a 3,00m overhanging roof, and it is a central element of the project, stimulating outdoor life. Opening aluminum frames with large glass panels and recessed railings in the floor, integrate living room and veranda with no visible elements or thresholds, increasing the continuity interior/exterior. Besides three suites(one with external access), by the main entrance a home office is visually connected with the living room. If desired, it gets some privacy by shutting the curtains and can be reversible as a guest room too. The kitchen is a protagonist space in the living room wide opened to the varanda and the landscape, extending the pleasure of cooking and being at the table to the whole house. The sink and the cooktop facing the view and the dining table, over a big black polished granite countertop, measuring 5,50×1,10m supported by an exposed concrete short wall. So the cook is visually integrated with the whole living room.Save this picture!© André NazarethThe same exposed concrete (made with handmade wood formwork) make up a more intimate corner for reading, playing music, watching TV, in the other side of the living room. The arts Studio, a wide hall lighted by skylights also contains a kitchen and a suite and can be used as a guest house. Its pavilionar shape, the structural slenderness and the low reflective colors of the deployed materials follow the concept of blending with nature that guided the project.Save this picture!© André NazarethThe significant presence of wood in floors, ceilings, roof foreheads, associated to exposed metal structure painted in natural iron color, as well as the external wall painting in moss green and aluminum frames in black also contributes to this integration with landscape.Save this picture!© André NazarethProject gallerySee allShow lessIsabel Building / Christian Dávila ArquitectosSelected ProjectsCity Park West / Pollard Thomas EdwardsSelected Projects Share Area:  5328 ft² Year Completion year of this architecture project CopyHouses, House Interiors•Petrópolis, Brazil “COPY” Brazil Architects: Rodrigo Simão Arquitetura Area Area of this architecture projectcenter_img Save this picture!© André Nazareth+ 42Curated by Matheus Pereira Share Year:  2019 Houses ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOr Clipboard House in Vale das Videiras / Rodrigo Simão Arquitetura “COPY” House in Vale das Videiras / Rodrigo Simão ArquiteturaSave this projectSaveHouse in Vale das Videiras / Rodrigo Simão Arquitetura CopyAbout this officeRodrigo Simão ArquiteturaOfficeFollowProductsGlassSteelConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesInterior DesignResidential InteriorsHouse InteriorsPetrópolisBrazilPublished on September 16, 2020Cite: “House in Vale das Videiras / Rodrigo Simão Arquitetura” [Casa no Vale das Videiras / Rodrigo Simão Arquitetura] 16 Sep 2020.

Point values are awarded for each successfully completed target. The team whose device accumulates the most points becomes the winner.Twenty-one student teams from 16 high schools in Southern California are competing in the challenge. They were invited to the JPL Invention Challenge based on results from two regional contests held in November.Three teams composed of JPL engineers and scientists are also in the competition.While the contest rules change each year, the goal is the same – to give students an opportunity to be creative and have fun with math, science and engineering.One of this year’s requirements is that devices must be initiated by a single action by the team’s operator for each launch of the playground ball – e.g., cut a string, flick a switch, pull a pin, etc. No human power may be used during the initiation of the device.The length and width of the device are limited to 2 meters or 6 feet 6 inches. The devices must also be made from non-toxic, safe materials.Trophies are divided into two categories: one for JPL employee/family/contractor entries, and the other for school team entries. Certificates will be issued for the largest, smallest, lightest, heaviest, most unusual, most artistic and most creative designs.The event is open for public viewing at the JPL Mall Area, at 4800 Oak Grove Drive, Pasadena, from 11:30 a.m. to 1:00 p.m., rain or shine.For more information, visit HerbeautyThat Sale Made Kim A BillionaireHerbeautyHerbeautyHerbeautyTiger Woods’ Ex Wife Found A New Love PartnerHerbeautyHerbeautyHerbeauty5 Things To Avoid If You Want To Have Whiter TeethHerbeautyHerbeautyHerbeautyShort On Time? 10-Minute Workouts Are Just What You NeedHerbeautyHerbeautyHerbeautyA Mental Health Chatbot Which Helps People With DepressionHerbeautyHerbeautyHerbeautyWant To Seriously Cut On Sugar?
