House in Iporanga

Iporanga House is located in Iporanga a condominium for summer houses on Sao Paulo’s coast, approximately 120km east form the capital. This condo is inside a very well preserved and protected area of the original Atlantic Rainforest. The exuberance of this native forest has taken the client to demand a house that occupied the minimum as possible of the ground (lot) surface. But at the same time he wanted it to be large and comfortable, and asked for 5 suites, one for the couple, one for each of his 3 suns and one for guests, which demanded not less the 400m2 to be built.
