Península House | Bernardes Arquitetura

Peninsula House, a weekend home in a coastal city close to São Paulo, is composed of three stacked abstract volumes which have been delicately positioned on a steep slope overlooking the Atlantic Ocean for minimum topographic impact.

Global Architecture & Design Awards 2018
First Award | Category: Private Residence (Built)

Architects: Bernardes Arquitetura
Country: Brazil

The house is divided in three parts: the rectangular base and the triangular superior volume, which have more private areas; and the transparent space in-between them where the common areas are located.

The suspended triangular volume creates shaded balconies protected from direct sunlight, while the more enclosed and monolithic base provides more intimate spaces. The tension between the two creates negative transparent spaces that visually connect with the landscape.
