Brise House (2013) by Gisele Taranto Arquitetura located in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. This project consists of a renovation of a house located in a noble neighborhood of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. Set in a lively area, the noise control was one of the top challenges, which in the end, had great influence on the final look of the architecture itself.

The main guidelines to solve this question was to turn the house to an interior courtyard, while movable shutters were integrated to the main facade, working as noise filters, but at the same time letting natural light into space. The courtyard, integrated to the living area, also lets natural light inside all rooms. The gardens – that surround the whole structure – let the green foliage visually connected with the interior area through glass panels that build the facade.

 

 

The house was originally composed of two separate buildings. Their integration was also an important key point of this project. Only one main block was created, with living area on the ground floor, private areas on the second floor, all directed to the interior courtyard, where the swimming pool and a living room were located; and service area on the basement. There was also a huge concern in keeping the original features of the house, like the stairs, for example, that had its original structure kept and was updated to contemporaneity through the materials and the new rail made of iron. Were also kept the Portuguese tiles from the dining room.
