Drucker Arquitetura have completed the AM House, a diverse modern residence located in São Paulo, Brazil. “Wrapped” in windows, this contemporary building exhibits an elegant minimalist style, appearing airy and light, despite its massive size. A generous courtyard with just enough parking space, green relaxation spots and an originally looking swimming pool casts an opulent impression when it comes to the property. Structured on four levels, the AM House is perfect for a big family living life at large.
The double-height open plan living room completely opens up towards the courtyard and swimming pool, due to floor-to-ceiling windows. With this complete outdoor-indoor connectivity, one is likely to get lost in the freshness of the exterior environment, while still indoors, immersed in complete comfort. This modern Brazilian residence in not your common bedroom/bathroom villa, offering some extra-treats as well, such as a spa, a home theater and a sauna. Check it out and tell us what you think!
Inside the school, a wall made of cross-laminated timber separates classrooms from the main corridor, providing a space for storage and study. With very little to work with, the architects have managed to create a building that is much more than just the sum of all of its parts
Energy during the construction process was saved by using FSC-certified glulam timber instead of steel to create the building’s distinctive wavy roof, while the store’s external walls use hemclad, a highly innovative insulator made from hemp, which, like all plants, absorbs CO2 from the atmosphere as it grows. An 80,000 litre water tank below ground provides water for the store’s toilets and waters the site’s green wall’, which provides natural insulation, acts as an all-natural pollution filter near the car park, and helps to encourage biodiversity. The result is a building that uses a fraction of the energy of structures of a similar size, and is still very popular with local shoppers.
