Veranda House in São Paulo

SM House by Jacobsen Arquitetura was designed around a simple concept: to create an elementary architectural composition combined with advanced techniques in wood housing construction. Located in São Paulo´s northeast shore, this house has been designed to be a beach house in essence: a place of refuge in the middle of Atlantic Rainforest, sheltered from the rain and the sun, beneath porches. It is a veranda house with large eaves and just a few walls, where indoor and outdoor spaces are fully integrated. We designed a transparent element for the upper floor, so it wouldn’t harm the visual relation with the sea and the forest.
