Simple Geometry Unveiling Spectacular Interiors: Limantos Residence in So Paulo
Limantos Residence by Fernanda Marques Arquitetos Associados is located on a very steep plot within a rich natural landscape in So Paulo, Brazil. Its simple building geometry evokes the rationalist architecture of Mies van der Rohe. Openness is one of the defining attributes of the project: Working at the limit between maximum transparency and the ideal level of privacy for each space was my greatest challenge. There was also a need to insert the house in the plot, conserve and respect the existing trees, and, obviously, the considerable steepness to consider, says So Paulo-based architect Fernanda Marques, who authored the design.
