São Paulo, 2020 - Located near São Paulo City, on a 9,000 m² area and with a long view of the surroundings, the JG HOUSE is a project signed by Gilda Meirelles Arquitetura. Made for a couple with many people and grandchildren, the purpose of the new home was to bring the family together for moments of leisure.

Based on an implantation aimed to enhance the two perspectives of the land – one of them facing a forest reserve - the house structure comprises large and integrated rooms, terrace and barbecue area for the family to spend most of the time, tv room, a suite with office, two bathrooms for the couple, four suites for the children and / or guests and two other large rooms to accommodate the children.
The course taken was then to create warm and pleasant environments, creating a functional circulation even with such a large built area. This was solved by creating several blocks interconnected by a glazed gallery that overlooks the green throughout the route. The use of materials that integrate with nature and the country house climate predominates in this project, such as the use of wood in the frames and coverings, the natural stone on the facade, the clay tile and a lot of glass to give transparency and connect the house to the external area.
