Casa Clara

This house; Casa Clara, is mainly a small house, strong personality and clear solution (clear means Clara in Portuguese). The entire house is delicately supported on the downhill terrain. The landscape has a free view of the interior, even the layout is clear, simple solution with elegant design, in some ways this house is very minimal.

The family that lives inside is also small; a couple, a child and 2 cats. The program demands are the same of most private houses; bedrooms, bathroom, open kitchen and etc. But the most important demand is the need of a very fast construction in the minimum size as possible. The result is 89 square meters in Steel Frame.

Casa Clara also privileges the thermal control (that is very important in Brazil, as a tropical country) the natural illumination and cross ventilation are also important, identified in the formal volume solution. Some facades are entire solids, some others are totally opened in glass and some other have both demands.

The ‘Cobogó” (Brazilian void concrete block) have an important role, guaranteeing the privacy of the occupants, this material also has some control of the afternoon insolation, as a void material this block allows the occupants to appreciate the wonderful sunset in Brasilia.

This house also has two facades exposed to the local street, as a solution the architects have created a wall that expands the house perimeter. And the other exposed facade is also totally made in Cobogo, that plays a role of Arabic Muxarabi.
