- Area: 550m²
About the project:
The concept came from the use of local materials with Cumaru and Angelim woods, in harmony with the exuberant nature of the region. The Amanã Residence designed by the architect Junior Andrade is located in Taipus de Fora, inside the Maraú Peninsula (BA). The property is situated in a 5 thousand square meter plot, with a total built-up area of 550 square meters.The Project was designed in two modules, which the first, where the main house is located, contains three suites, a living room, a built-in kitchen and a view of the infinity-edge pool, a deck, and a gourmet area. In the second module, in the back, two exclusive bungalows with a private SPA were built, and a spectacular 360° view of pure nature. Another differential is the private lake, which is part of the property, where the house connects visually with the surrounding nature.
The project was completed last year, and it was built using local materials such as Cumaru and Angelim woods. "The main concept of the project was to adapt and integrate the house with the nature. We can sense that clearly in the way that the surroundings are included and harmonized with the house. We see that through the openings of the windows and miters, which creates a connection with the nature at all times. The infinity-edge pool was placed strategically, thinking again about the connection with the surroundings, which, in this case, was the house's lake. Therefore, who is inside the pool has the sensation of being inside the lake. The local labor was another decisive element in our proposition, and the wood was used precisely to bring regionalism to the project", explains the architect, Junior Andrade.
