Casa Itu by Studio Arthur Casas

Located about an hour from S達o Paulo,’Casa Itu‘ by renomated brazilian practice studio Arthur Casas is a refuge for a young couple, that takes maximum advantageof the surrounding landscape. The floor plan in L shape divides the house in a simple way: the main volume contains the children卒s room in the ground floor, a courtyard next to the home theater forms an intimate living room, a large living room opens onto the terrace and garden, erasing the boundaries between inside and outside. Above this volume are situated the master suite and a gym. In the secondary volume are the dining room, kitchen and the service areas. On the first floor of this volume are the guest rooms.

The house is marked by horizontality and fluidity between the spaces. The entry is made at the point where the two volumes converge; a low-ceiling guides the look to the external landscape. On one side the stone floor of the dining room goes towards the terrace, gradually merging into the garden.

A tree trunk dominates the living room, covering the single column present in the room. The windows slide completely and are hidden inside the walls, bringing the terrace and landscape into the house. The wood floor and ceiling give a warm and domestic aspect to that space that is merged with nature.
