The design of a condominium located at Lake Guaíba was inspired by the family’s love for water. The living space was created to blend with the artificial lake, which enhances the view of the living channel. The residents, a young family with two children, aimed to connect their new home with their passion for sports and nature. The entrance welcomes guests with a stone path over the lake, and the ground floor features two lakes that connect the social area, kitchen, and entrance reservoir. A 4-meter-long pool is inserted into a volume of skated blocks in the hall, which includes environments like a gym, collections room, office, intimate living, and guest room.
The toy library on the ground floor, located near the balcony, is a part of the effort to integrate all spaces in the house, including those for children. Architect Roberto Stemmer faced the challenge of creating a large space in two volumes while maintaining the unity of the project. The artificial lake extends to the pool and edge lane, leading to the infinity channel that invites sports enthusiasts. One of the three intimate suites is camouflaged on the north level, accessible only by stairs.
The upper floor is protected with patinated copper that provides ventilation and natural lighting to the rooms. An upper deck offers a view of the surrounding area and crowns this floor space. A marquee shelters the cars and has access to the bicycle workshop. The use of wood and patinated copper generates blue-green tones that honor the water, reflecting the purpose of Casa Nascente architecture.
