FR residence in Ubatuba

Andrade Morettin Arquitetos 

Located on the north coast of São Paulo, this 240-square-meter summer house stands a few meters from the sea, hidden amid a lush forest. The neutral volume opens to the outdoors with sliding doors, and lets daylight in through panels of polycarbonate and glass. The two main facades have wide eaves and roll-up metal enclosures.

The construction system is based on prefabricated wooden elements assembled on the site. The building is raised 75 centimeters over the ground, ensuring natural ventilation of the base, cooling the house, and significantly preventing excess humidity.
