IG House, São Paulo, Brazil
Casa IG was designed for a young couple with two small children. Originally having 4 suites, it was transformed into 3 suites and a kid's room, in addition to receiving changes on the ground floor, with the expansion of the living room with the partial closure of the pergola. Thus, the 4 pavements of the house were organized: the underground, that counts with vehicle access, service area, quaradouro (an airy and sunny place, where to put the clothes to dry) and technical areas of the residence; the ground floor, which lodge the main access and the living areas of the house, kitchen, terrace and swimming pool; the First floor, dedicated to the children's suites and to the kid's room; the Second floor, that concentrates all the couple program, with the office, which can be integrated to the living with the opening of the folding doors, a closet and the master bath.
By dealing with a personalization of an existing house, all the infrastructure had to be redistributed and studied, in order to enable the clients' request of increasing the ceiling height. Therefore, it was necessary to study the infrastructure of the whole house, with the structure reinforcements in the existing metallic structure, besides the reduction of the subfloor and specification of thinner thickness materials. That way, it was made an increase of almost 20 cm in the ceiling height. The house has in its furniture materials and colors that are associated with neutrality, through natural materials, such as linen, neutral stone and light tone woods, always opposed to the presence of the jacaranda, on the mixtures of the contemporary furniture with brazilian modern ones.
