Mountain House by David Guerra Architecture

All private and social areas were developed in one single level which faces the mountains. The verandas of these premises are turned to a grassy courtyard where the swimming pool with a deck, a  douche, a water mirror and a cascade is located.

The materials were chosen with the aim to combine beauty, snugness and ease of maintenance and to create a contrast between natural and technological materials such as reclaimed wood, stones, earthenware, bamboo, tile, fiber, metal, stainless steel, double glazed and laminated glass, glass tile, anodized aluminum, wood venetian and tecnocimento.

The use of wood on the floor, the walls and the ceiling as well as the massive wooden doors cause noise absorption which increases the acoustic comfort.

The cantilever roofing of the verandas made of steel structure, bamboo and polycarbonate offer shading and create a village atmosphere.

There was no intention to follow a fad by the choice of the furniture. Rather each article of furniture was selected carefully to reflect the personal history of the occupants with their multiplicity, their references and values.

The furniture includes classic, rustic, contemporary designs and pieces made by Brazilian designers. All the furniture give to the entire area a sense of lightness and fluidity that enable to see through them, the landscape.
