Marcon House by Ramella Arquitetura
Ramella Arquitetura has completed the Marcon House in a beautiful open area in Xangri-la, on the southern coast of Brazil. This house has a very attractive and pleasant exterior built with brick and concrete. This classic material combination has been very carefully adjusted to the modern look, opening the interior of the house to the view of the outdoor area.
The sloping terrain for the lake is instrumental in surprising the broader and narrower front plants in the back, and the plan for the floor needs to be extended to the mezzanine because the view under the lake since the living room has narrowed. Decking on the back porch, just past the living room, is also a solution to approaching the lake from the terrace and making integration with landscapes and parks more attractive.
Clearly brick and concrete houses are located in many condominiums in Xangri-la, Brazil’s southern coast, and their interior life is closely related to integration with landscapes and parks, which families look for in beach houses. The facade that is more blind than the openings has a garage terrace with a small garden in the background that blends into the living room with double height and mezzanine. Its interior, in its concrete, wood and brick texture follows a reference to the outside facade, leaving it all comfortable in an architectonic composition in perfect harmony.
The higher deposit volume of beach goods with the right foot for the planks and fishing rods in front of the house produced more impressive on a modest facade which is softened by the horizontality of the green cover slab in concrete which is clearly visible. The landscape design carried out by architects has the function of limiting land spaces with parks that are made to grow and keep up with changes in the house during that time. “Limos, mosses, stains on concrete and bricks, are a sign of the time it left at home and changed it during that time, as well as its gardens which behave differently according to the time of year.”
