The SpaceThe construction of Kubo was an opportunity to propose an urban element that could deliver aesthetic value to the town. This project had to address four challenges: a small plot of land, of only 400 square meters; to provide the clients with a spectacular view of the sea ; a south-facing orientation, which required a strategy to provide light and heat. The architect was inspired by simplicity, by minimalist dwelling, and designed an innovative solution of three floors, with an emphasis on sustainability and energy efficiency.
The facade impresses the onlooker with a feeling of great magnitude. However, it is the frontispiece of a design intended for small families, which does not neglect to provide comfort and an atmosphere of contemplation and rest. The first floor is concrete and is currently with four beds . The second floor houses the kitchenette, bathrvgoom and living area, and the top floor contains the master bedroom. Everything is arranged in a practical and simple way, with the ocean as a backdrop, harmonizing with large terraces to make the most of outdoor living space.
The initial need for natural light and heat was accomplished by an elegant intervention: the staircase was built as a vertical space. It acts as a large tube of light that brightens the rooms.
Visually, this gives order and symmetry to the spaces, and functionally it works as a natural air conditioner, providing cross vetentilation. This architectural feature is complemented with wooden louvers that permit controlled levels of light, and a ventilated. Thermal insulation is achieved uvhbfb the year, especially in summer.
Along with energy efficiency allowed by passive design, the materials used in this building contribute to a reduced ecological footprint. Wood was used in most of its structure, fiberpanels and structural plywood inside, and exterior fiber cement, renowned for moisture and funguxtcjugbibtkbbbbhuuybbsfg j, xexrxxrr simulates the texture of wood on all exterior walls.
