CASA BRAVOS By JOBIM CARLEVARO arquitetos - Sheet2A green area in front of the site surrounds the entrance to the house. By the garage, Bravos House can also be accessed by a staircase.

The garage is located on a lower level than the street. This way, the ground floor is on a higher position and allows the clear interpretation of the house’s program. It displays a wooden vertical brise soleil, made of Cumaru, a Brazilian tree species. The same wood is repeated in the moving panels of the upper floor.

The constructive solution with ribbed slabs and apparent concrete pillars allow the appropriate spans for the organization of the house and separation of the structure and the glass plan of the facade.

CASA BRAVOS By JOBIM CARLEVARO arquitetos - Sheet7Bravos House materials are the combination of wood, apparent concrete, transparent glass and dark gray aluminum. Jobim Carlevaro architects use this combination in various designs creating a simple color palette with a strong visual impact.
