Endless Horizon House

The location of the land within a privileged landscape located in Petrópolis, Brazil was the determining factor for the implementation of this project. Designed by Siqueira + Azul Arquitetura, the construction concept was to land over plateaus and develop over axes of paths which were determined by the project’s program. Divided into specific areas, the architecture scheme consisted of open and plentiful spaces, oriented to the amplest view. Characterised by spacious galleries, the main central axes are bathed with natural light and receives ventilation through the pivoting doors. The social and private sector lies under a flat roof plane, allowing for daylight to come through.
Fresh air fills the indoor areas, evidenced by the internal gardens of each segment. Sliding, pivoting panels, and folding doors are catalysts for cross ventilation. Covered balconies with wooden slats extend the continuity from indoor to outdoor, creating shading zones within lit spaces. Standing independently is the leisure sector, with its distinct lighting aesthetics pronounced by the rectilinear marking of the ceilings.
Near the native stone constructed pool, rests an open-aired block, where glass-covered pergolas with buriti straw give shadow to a long concrete countertop. Natural materials give voice to a unique language. They aid in composing the façade of extensive wooden panels in geometric forms, seeking to explore the materiality within a singular drawing component.
