From the bedrooms to the front façade, the A11 house offers an important visual panorama of its surroundings. The lot, relatively small for the built area, acquires greater visual amplitude through the sequence of open spaces and windows, leading to a spatial integration. On the ground floor, the left block houses all the service areas. On the upper floor, a large terrace on the rear façade serves as a transition between indoors and outdoors. A succession of spaces with simple, double, covered and uncovered ceilings provide diversity and distinct uses to the back patio of the A11 house.

Flavio Castro had the opportunity to start designing and building early, with only 20 years old. Flavio defends that practical experience completes academic theory, and has always worked in these two areas, with experience in architectural firms inside and outside Brazil. After three years of Masters in Barcelona, he returned to Brazil and settled in São Paulo, founding FCstudo in 2009. The collaboration system that exists within the office allows a constant exchange of information among professionals who join the team depending on each project´s demand.
