Two story residence – Vertical House by Isay Weinfeld

Vertical House
The Vertical House designed by Isay Weinfeld, this 3,767 square foot two-story residence is located in São Paulo, Brazil.

The following text is description from the architect:
This house was designed for a young single man on a tight urban site covering only 180 square meters. Having a full program to consider – besides the usual rooms, the client wished for a guest room, a gym, a swimming pool and caretaker’s quarters -, we decided to build the house vertically and to evolve the rooms upwards on split-levels: a basement, four above-ground floors and a rooftop terrace.

Small walled garden
Down in the basement are a small gym and sauna. On ground floor, set between an entry court where a cutout in the roof brings natural light in and lets a Yellow Ipê tree to rise up through and grow, and a tiny walled-in garden and swimming pool in the back of the plot, a lofty, double-height living room is the core space in the house.

One level up is the master suite with an east-facing balcony; another level above is a guest bedroom with a west-facing balcony. Finally, on the uppermost level, a rooftop terrace crowns the densely packed structure.
