Casa Corten

Award: Wood Pencil

Wood Pencil / Environmental Design / Residential / 2009

Casa Corten is an urban house located near the largest park in the city of São Paulo, Brazil. The site is long and narrow, and its residents make use of the rooftop and, especially, the park itself for leisure. The front facade is made of Corten weathering steel. There is a dialogue between the rusty texture on the outside and the stone, wood, white mortar and glass that build the space. On the ground floor, there is an ample room with a ceiling height of 5.2m and four folding doors that completely open out to the deck and external fireplace. In the living room, a free wooden volume houses the kitchen and utilities. The three bedrooms are located on the second floor.
