Isay Weinfeld Casa Piracicaba (5)
Isay Weinfeld‘s Casa Piracicaba is a home for a scattered Brazilian family, an escape from the frantic streets of Sao Paulo. Clean forms, open spaces and a light make an ideal foundation for the family’s gatherings.

The three story, L shaped structure lays on a slopping land, which was a main problem. The architect overcame that by stacking the three volumes on top of one another. The lower is partially subterranean and consists of  storage space and a garage. The second, accessed by a curved pathway is a living area with kitchen and dining rooms. The top levels are reserved for sleeping area, where are all family bedrooms and another living room.
