Casa Bravos (2015) by Jobim Carlevaro Arquitetos, located in Itajaí, Brazil. Casa Bravos was conceived in 2013 and built between 2013 and 2015 on a plot of land situated in the Porto Riviera condominium on Praia Brava de Itajaí / SC. With a constructed area of 10,085 ft² (937 m²), the organization criterion was to position the best views for the East sector where Brava Beach is located, organizing the program with the living areas on the lower floor, the dormitories on the upper floor and services with underground garage.
Access is by the ground level from the street through a green area or by the stairway from the basement. The organization of the semi-buried garage creates a facade with horizontal elements showing clearly the criterion of implantation on the ground with the body of the highest ground floor, with vertical mobile brises, as well as the upper floor: also with the brass solution in Cumaru wood. The constructive solution with massive slabs and apparent concrete pillars allow the appropriate spans for the organization of the environments and separation of the structure of the glass plan of the facade.
The materials used look for the combination of wood, apparent concrete, colorless glass and dark gray aluminum in RAL7024 color. They are combinations that we use in various office projects creating a simple color palette and strong visual impact. The pool was located on the ground floor as an extension of the living and dining areas, allowing an intimate space along with the landscaping solutions.
