RIO DAS OSTRAS HOUSE | BRAZIL New building project | Complete house | Architecture and construction management

Located in an area surrounded by green where you can hear the waves of the sea, this single-family house was planned where the design prevails in every detail and its functionality accommodates to the client’s need. Developed over two floors, practicality and flexibility are the main components of the proposal, materialized through simple lines and pure forms. The apparent concrete is the main structural element of the house, highlighting the front facade, the beam that divides the space of the kitchen and living room, where there is a charming waterfall-shaped staircase. The living space has glass doors along the entire length of the dividing wall next to the external area, allowing visual and physical merging between the living room and the garden.

PROJECT 1 | ARCHITECTURE

The first floor consists of three suites, the master suite has a walking closet, a beautiful and huge bathroom and a balcony facing the residence’s garden, satisfying the customers’ desire. The rooms are distributed so that the upper hall is distributed in the form of suspended walkways between the rooms, creating double height in the foyer on the ground floor.

SAO JOSE HOUSE | BRAZIL Renovation project | Kitchen and Bath | Interior design and construction management

This old house was built in 1966 and underwent some renovations. Especially in the kitchen and bathroom, a general renovation was necessary, with changes in plumbing, electrical and wall demolition. The purpose of the project was to optimize spaces, improve their functionality and bring a new design with contemporary trends. According to the client’s schedule and budget, this renovation was divided into two stages. The bathroom entrance was modified to be from the light well, and no longer from the kitchen side. With that, it was possible to increase the space in the kitchen that was the client’s desire. The kitchen window was replaced by a larger one, ensuring better ventilation and natural lighting, and in the bathroom these two aspects were guaranteed through a zenith opening. Simple forms and modern materials were used for new cabinetry in both rooms. In the bathroom, the white colour stood out both in cabinetry and in the marbled tiles in contrast with the woody tiles of the shower area. In the kitchen, the space was expanded with the demolition of a wall. The cement floor contrasted with the lower cabinets in light wood and upper cabinets in white.

ANDALUZ APARTMENT | BRAZIL Renovation project | Entire apartment | Interior design and construction management

This apartment was renovated, in order to ensure better use of spaces and reflect the client’s personal style. In the bathrooms, the tiles were modernized and laminate wood flooring was installed in the bedrooms and living room, providing a feeling of comfort. In the kitchen, white subway tiles were used contrasting with the cement floor, and corten steel cabinets were installed in contrast to the existing white cabinets. The walls were painted in light gray, bringing a feeling of peace and tranquility at home. According to the client’s request, the budget was reduced by 37% in relation to the initial projected value and the schedule was short, only 2 months for planning, material purchases and construction. The contract signing with customer, construction planning, choice of suppliers and material purchases were carried out during July 2017. All services of construction were executed in August 2017.

ESTUDIO DO CORPO | BRAZIL Renovation project | Dance and Yoga Studio | Concept and final design

The complexity of this project is due to the fact that there are two different uses in the same lot: the client’s residence and the dance and yoga studio. The project’s conception sought to maintain the design concept of the existing building, keeping the diagonal lines in relation to the facade, in order to harmonize the two spaces. Besides that, clients required that the project prioritize the privacy of their residence, clearly defining spaces for collective use and those for private use. The design’s extension consists of a building with two floors, the upper floor being reduced in relation to the ground floor, avoiding the obstruction of the sunlight east of the master bedroom. The openings of the new building were defined prioritizing morning sunlight to the ground floor, and the sunlight from the north facade to the upper floor. Opposite windows to the south were also proposed, creating a cross-ventilation corridor on both floors. The chosen materials were steel frame structure, to give desired speed in the construction, and apparent bricks harmonizing with the residence. The project must respect the regulatory limitations (State Building Code and Municipal Legislation on Land Use and Occupacion), such as the side spaces between lot-building, the sanitary lane in the lot background, occupancy rate and utilization coefficient.

URBAN DEVELOPMENT MASTER PLAN | BRAZIL Master Plan | Itaparica Island | Urban Diagnosis and Urban Legislation

This project covers the review of the Master Plans of the two municipalities that make up the Island of Itaparica - Itaparica and Vera Cruz - and was produced with the team of the Demacamp Company and partners.

PROJECT 5 | URBAN PLANNING

The urban diagnosis of these two municipalities was developed through the analysis of information and data available from each municipality and from technical visits, with the objective of knowing the municipal reality under the most varied aspects urban life (social, economic and environmental, among others), always focusing on community participation. The occupation on the Itaparica Island dates from the 16th century, but its territory started to stand out in the regional, national and even international scenarios from the 70s, assuming the role of a summer resort for the population of Greater Salvador Area and its surroundings, changing irreversibly the island’s occupation pattern. Most of its territory is not occupied by an urban area, containing many areas of environmental interest and preservation. There are also areas of tangible and intangible cultural heritage, such as churches from the 17th century and fisherwomen which preserve the culture of seafood fishing on the island.

Type 1 (Tradicional) Traditional Occupation

URBAN DIAGNOSIS STAGE

Occupancy pattern characteristic of a consolidated historic center, with the presence of historic buildings, high occupancy rate of the lot, terraced houses and built in the alignment of the sidewalks, with predominance of ground-floor buildings and presence of mixed use.

OCCUPATION TYPOLOGIES City of Itaparica

Type 2 (Veraneio) Typical Vacation Occupation Occupancy pattern characteristic of medium standard vacation homes, located in regularly approved subdivisions, detached houses, generating low density occupation and good construction pattern (regardless of the current stage of conservation).

Type 3 (Irregular precรกria) Precarious Irregular Occupation - slums Occupation pattern characteristic of precarious settlement, with incomplete urban infrastructure, self-built housing units, improvised road, located in environmentally fragile areas or improper terrain with high slope.

Type 4 (Misto) Mixed Use Occupation Typical occupation pattern of mixed use, with the presence of small and medium-sized commerce and services and infrastructure of social facilities: school, health clinic, etc.

PROPOSED MACROZONING The new zoning was proposed following three main concepts: • • •

Simplification of the law Prioritize urban and environmental quality Enhancing the city’s cultural identity and heritage

Macrozone for Environmental and Cultural Protection Macrozone of Urban Containment and Sustainable Use Macrozone of Urban Restructuring and Landscape Interest Macrozone of Landscape and Cultural Interest Macrozone of Urban Requalification and Priority Density Macrozone of Architectural and Cultural Interest


ACTION PLAN: SUSTAINABLE PALMAS | BRAZIL Emerging and Sustainable Cities Initiative | Palmas | Urban Diagnosis and Final Report

The Emerging and Sustainable Cities Program (ESC) of the Inter-American Development Bank is a technical assistance program providing direct support to national and subnational governments in the development and execution of city action plans. ESC employs a multidisciplinary approach to identify, organize and prioritize urban interventions to tackle the main roadblocks that prevent the sustainable growth of emerging cities in Latin America and the Caribbean.

PROJECT 6

ESC’s Methodology is based on the premise that urban development strategies that are well-planned, integrated, and cross-sectoral, can ensure improvements in the quality of life for citizens and help materialize a more sustainable, resilient, and inclusive future for emerging cities in the region. The proposed methodological adjustment stipulates a new set of 10 topics, 15 subtopics and 17 indicators. ESC’s Methodology is organized in a two-stage, five phase process:

The Action Plan: Sustainable Palmas summarizes the results of the diagnostic process carried out in an intersectoral manner, which culminated in prioritizing the areas of activity, in the actions and solutions proposed for the sustainable growth of the city. The proposals in the Action Plan will contribute to the performance and direction of investments by public authorities, civil society organizations and the private sector, seeking integrated planning of public policies with the objective of promoting more balanced development and improving the population’s quality of life.
