House Carqueija eas designed by Bento e Azevedo Arquitetos Associados and is located in Brazil. As seen on Arch Daily, the residence stretches over an area of about 260,00 sqm and takes advantage of the beautiful natural landscape within which it is integrated. Here is more information on the project’s structure from the architects: With a simple and efficient plan, it is a ground floor house with 2 rooms, a chapel and a large and flexible social area, which integrate living, dining and tv room in a open space, linked to the outside area through a porch. In order to have the best orientation, in a tropical county, the house closes itself from the front street view, which is west, and opens into the backyard, creating a privative and integrated place. That way, on the front facade, architectural elements, as a narrow windows and a pare-soleil was used to protect the house against solar irradiation, while the back facade, on east side, completely integrate the inside with the outside, through large windows, sliding doors and a porch, connecting the house with the green area. This modern home is not just “well organized”. Its beautiful white facade, the generous pool and terrace as well as its interior design make it inviting to say the least.
