House in Praia Preta by Nitsche Arquitetos Accociados
House in Praia Preta has been designed by Nitsche Arquitetos Accociados located on a strip of land between the sea and the mountains of the Serra do Mar in São Paulo, Brazil. The house has been completely remodeled; the only elements preserved are its laminated-wooden structure and a few walls. The design plan for the renovation was to open the living spaces into a single roomy space and strengthen the exterior facade to the natural forces. The 7,696 square foot house is a large rectangular platform with its longer sides parallel to the beach. Parallel verandas in opposed facades helps with cross ventilation for all the spaces throughout the home.
