Casa HS na Quinta da Baroneza by Studio Arthur Casas

Casa HS na Quinta da Baroneza is a beautiful countryside home that has been designed by Studio Arthur Casas, built to be completely open to a beautiful golf course just outside of São Paulo, Brazil. The program is quite extensive, comprised of over 10,764 square feet (1,000 square meters) of living space. Its understanding is quite simple though: a volume for the children and guests, another one for the couple and the common spaces of the house. The dichotomy between these two programs generated a horizontal volume for the guests in contrast to a cube that hosts the parents, both are completely open to the landscape.

The couple hosts a lot of guests, but in the weekends where they’re by themselves they didn’t want to lose the domestic scale of the house. The solution found was to have all the necessary programs of the house in the first volume, with living room, dining room and kitchen on the ground floor, home theater and the master bedroom in the first floor.

Between the first volume and the guesthouse a patio establishes the boundaries of the programs. A retractable roof allows the sun and the wind to penetrate the space that has a vertical garden and a water basin.

Seen from the street, the house is a discrete building, with a long facade made out of perforated metal panels, protected from the view of the street by the landscape design with several trees and bushes. These panels can be opened revealing the bedrooms, large sliding doors integrate them with the corridor. Glass sliding doors also integrate the corridor with the landscape, transforming the volume in a pavilion completely open to nature.

Underneath the house there’s a private gym, sauna and technical spaces, forming the base of the house that takes profit of the high inclination of the terrain. On the side of the street the house appears as a low and long horizontal line, from the golf course the volumes sit upon a stone base, with a large water basin in front of it bringing lightness to the building
