In the skies of the inland municipality of Carpina, there is always a flock passing by,
there is always a bird singing. In this very unique setting, the design of the country
house emerges in its primary condition - enjoying the surrounding atmosphere through
architecture without excess. The generatrix of the architectural party comes from the
longitudinal cut of the sloping geography and appropriates the natural profile of the site
in the middle of the Zona da Mata Pernambucana.
The pragmatic design process comprises the premises imposed on its dichotomy -
balancing economic and constructive reasons. In summary, the conventional
construction system in reinforced concrete, omnipresent in the territory, validates the
unfolding and tracing of an identity architecture within the possibilities. Therefore, the
technical accuracy of the designers at the construction site orchestrates the conscious
apparatus in the materialization of this dialectic.
The regulatory layout of the plants assumes a modular division, by ordering and
accommodating a dense programmatic scope for a residence of 240m² of built area,
distributed over two floors. On the other hand, despite the compact conformation of the
domestic program, the geometric resolution of the building void succeeds in qualifying
the ambience of the occupied spaces, in an attempt to legitimize dialogues with the
enjoyment of the uninterrupted rural landscape surrounding the habitat.
From the articulation of volumetrically disparate orthogonal solids, the plastic
expression of rigorous design aims to accentuate the geometric rigor with a certain
fragmentation by subverting formal protagonisms. The straight, hard, inflexible line
created by man sometimes comprises continuous strokes, sometimes discontinuous,
emerging when advancing and retracting the calligraphy with non-coplanar edges.
In its materiality, the project takes advantage of the tangible synergy in the profusion of
the glass blocks in attenuating the natural light through a plural optics. This experience
combines a sensitive poetic narrative by virtue of the shadow, between the metric
coexistence of the blocks before the slender embroidery of nature placed there.
Another element gives rise to a notable role in its heart, an unexpected glass walkway
paradoxically hovers over the landscape and witnesses the finite by gravitating the
natural interfaces and building the perennial meaning of space. Existence precedes its
essence, this value perpetuates the soul of the house - the elegance of the emptiness
built up against the sublime nature.
