Acapulco House is a contemporary two-storey personal residence situated in Guarujá, Brazil and designed by FCstudio. The imposing residence is made up of six squares grouped in pairs. Within this compositional rule, two subtractions have been made at reverse sides to type two venues: the storage within the entrance and the social space behind. According to the architects, “the logic of the common squares tremendously facilitated the mathematical calculations and the structural efficiency of the home, as a result of the identical constructive process could possibly be adopted for all the constructing.” The distances between pillars are virtually the identical and there are not any structural transitions between the primary and higher flooring.
Transparency was a key aspect to think about when planning this imposing venture. As you’ll be able to observe, the courtyard facade was virtually completely envisioned in glass. Only one discontinuity occurs and this corresponds to the steps that result in the second flooring. The complete higher degree (consisting of 4 fits) represents the personal areas, outlined within the undertaking by a daring inexperienced colour. The entrance hallway might be probably the most spectacular a part of the design scheme, with a water function underneath the steps for air humidity throughout days of intense warmth.
