Starkly minimalistic yet embellishing modern style, Casa Bravos was built at the Porto Riviera Condominium, in Brava Beach, city of Itajaí, Southern Brazil. Offering a simple color palette with a strong visual impact, the house opens its best views to the east sector of the site, where Brava beach is located with the living areas positioned on the lower floor and the bedrooms on the upper floor taking full advantage of the intimate space of the property along with the landscaping solutions where a green area in front of the site surrounds the entrance to the house
Bravos House materials are the combination of wood, apparent concrete, transparent glass and dark gray aluminum. The constructive solution with ribbed slabs and apparent concrete pillars allow the appropriate spans for the organization of the house and separation of the structure and the glass plan of the facade.
The garage is located on a lower level than the street. This way, the ground floor is on a higher position and allows the clear interpretation of the house’s program that displays a wooden vertical brise soleil, made of Cumaru, a Brazilian tree species. The same wood is repeated in the moving panels of the upper floor. The pool is located on the ground floor as an extension of the living and dining areas allowing for a vibrant indoor-outdoor living experience.
