KT House in São Carlos, Brazil designed by lb+mr

The São Paulo-based architecture and engineering office lb+mr led by Mila Ricetti has designed ''Casa KT'' a single-family home that is located in Condomínio Damha Golf, São Carlos, São PauloBrazil.

Project description by the architects:

The unconventional shape of the building land plus the required six-meter strip retreat along to the street guided the project implementation. The house was designed from clear volumes, natural materials, seeking cross ventilation, natural lighting and a delicate fit into the building site.

Designed for a young couple and their children, the project's premise was to guarantee full visual domain, the house develops around a central courtyard connecting the three well-defined wings: service, social and intimate, which all open completely to the central courtyard, allowing the house to be fully connected. Wooden brises and glass panels allow optional isolation and privacy when desired.

The six-meter strip retreat works as an extension of the central courtyard, following the same concept that led the entire project, granting visual connection to the whole design, whilst keeping the resident's privacy by the subtle use of dense vegetation and ground elevation.
