With an architectural and interior designed by the office Estúdio Obra Prima, the Jabuticaba House is located in the Fazenda Boa Vista, in Porto Feliz, a rural zone of São Paulo state, on a plot of approximately 5,650.00 square meters.

The residence was developed for a couple and represents a refuge near their home town São Paulo, providing well-being, contact with nature without leaving aside the services and functionalities expected for a country house.

With several leisure areas, generous social environments and spaces for guests, the residence has 1,535 m² built and an extensive program developed to meet different profiles and periods of the year, prioritizing family life, without giving up moments and intimate spaces.

The horizontality of the project is reinforced with the development of a ground house, which values the natural and smooth insertion of the volume in the ground. Its volumetry favors the meeting and is arranged in two large perpendicular bars, each with its own program: in one of them are all the rooms and in the other are the social and service areas. The intersection of these bars configures the reception, which acts as a midpoint between social and intimate environments.

Seeking the purity of the forms, the clear reading of the environments and their relationships, the project sought to meet all the needs of the customers, besides providing an inviting and cozy atmosphere for all spaces. For this, the architects opted for the use of materials in its natural state - such as basalt in shards on the floor and stone - and the use of large sliding glass doors that allows abundant natural lighting.

A large winter garden, located right at the entrance, integrates the inner space with the nature outside bringing the external vegetation to the interior of the house, without losing privacy and offering even more lighting and natural ventilation to the project. The jabuticabeiras planted in front of the living room - between the spans of the pergolado - gain prominence and are part of the external and internal atmosphere of the environment.

One of the key points of this design is in the layout of the room, which is loose from the walls and frames, creating a circulation all around and that still becomes the center of the residence, resulting in a cozy and fluid environment at the same time.
