Design TeamFlavio Castro, João Falqueto, Erica Miranda

The house is located on the Iporanga peninsula, on the coast of São Paulo, in extremely sloped land. From this, in an attempt to make the most of the beautiful view of the sea, the volumetry is verticalized. The social floor, where the pool and gourmet area is located, deserves special attention. Here, the concept of porch space enhances integration with the surroundings. Here, we harmonize architecture, interiors and lighting through the control of colors, textures, materials and proportions in different scales.

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.
