Sao Paulo-based studio Isay Weinfeld has completed the Casa Piracicaba project in 2009.
This three-story contemporary residence is located in Piracicaba, a city about 250km/155 miles away to the north-west of Sao Paulo, Brazil.
The three story, L shaped structure lays on a slopping land, which was a main problem. The architect overcame that by stacking the three volumes on top of one another. The lower is partially subterranean and consists of storage space and a garage. The second, accessed by a curved pathway is a living area with kitchen and dining rooms. The top levels are reserved for sleeping area, where are all family bedrooms and another living room.
