Casa Bahia

Salvador de Bahia / Brazil / 2010

Project Details


The Bahia House is an ecological house. But, not in the technological sense, not in the contemporary sense of the word “sustainability”, it does not have the very latest state-of-the-art gadgets that make it possible to optimize electric expenditure. The organization of the floor plan and the use of materials come close to those of traditional architecture.

I don't want to miss the vernacular elements I perceive too in these images. Elements that you can find in Kumas works, but lacks in da Rocha

At last I appreciate a lot this work. Already from the picture emerges a strong sensual effect of materials and nature. It evokes in my mind a mixed composition of De Rocha, De Moura and Kuma lessical dimensions: brasilian sensual space density of the first balanced by the serenity of miesian proportions combined with the strong sense of natural material that I find in De Moura. All this dressed with the attemp to get the Kumas use of wood web surfaces as luministic evanescent side scenes . A really appropriate mix for the place. Just only the use of light does not succeed to reach Kumas performance, I think.

Wood surfaces seems to be by teak essence. False ceiling material is made of the same too? So, I try to imagine how all they will appear .... ten years later?

Do you think this simmetric disposition of luminaires is the right one? I'm sure the architect has reasoned a lot about it, and at last decided so. I ask myself: Why?
