Grupo SP architects have constructed an impressive project located in suburbs of Sao Paolo, Brazil. This family residence built for a client that admires and collects books, his collection has more than 7500 books. The owner wanted a house where he can store and exhibit his unique book collection. Books became the most emblematic element of the residence where they occupy one entire wall.
The design takes advantage of a height difference between a street and the parcel, so the living-room is situated in the lower part that provides a maximum of privacy while maintaining a contact with surrounding nature. The simple design has a simple construction of reinforced concrete and monolithic concrete floors. Walls have not been anyhow modified with one exception – the book wall. The interior space has a maximum of natural sunlight thanks to two opposing walls.
