Architect Flavio Castro has designed the Planalto House in São Paulo, Brazil.
The characteristics of the materials used in this residence as chromaticism, texture and transparency were carefully chosen because of the intentions pursued in each space. While the transparence integrates, the concrete do the opposite. The concrete walls divide the space, while the large sliding glass doors bring the landscape into the house.
The materials are sincere. The concrete, glass, wood and steel are shown in its essence, without intermediaries.
The Planalto house was conceived as an urban house for a couple with 02 children and could be considered as exemplary of the current Brazilian contemporary architecture.
