July 21, 2010 Summer House Design
R R House, is a summer house in Sao Paulo was designed by Andrade Morettin Architects.
This Summer house is situated only a fey meters from the sea, on the north coast of the State of Sao Paulo, a place with exuberant vegetation and hot humid climate.
The project was begun with the idea of a big shelter, a “shell”, under which the actual living spaces would be located, protected from the intense sun and the frequents rains, however without blocking the permanent natural cross ventilation.
This roof at a height of six meters, with a surface of eighteen by eight meters, was built using a pre-fabricated timber structure with galvanized steel joints. The lateral and top faces are made of steel cladding with eps filling.
