Mirindiba House

Award: Wood Pencil

Wood Pencil / Environmental Design / Residential / 2008

Mirindiba House is the alignment of design and execution. The design is embodied in every architectural detail. In the entrance, an atrium links the spaces together: the path to the dining room, the kitchen, the living room and, vertically, to the bedrooms and a small, intimate area. At the top, two large wooden doors open onto a deck where there is a beautiful view of the city. On the first floor, the living room opens entirely: two window mouldings are imbedded in the wall. This creates an uninterrupted open space between two gardens. The gardens have wooden floors, a reflective pool and minimal vegetation. The interplay of volumes builds a free and continuous space.
