When landscaping, we always make sure that it is not just visually appealing. But we also ensure that the plants thrive for a long time because it is the number one element that makes the landscape breathtaking. We also make sure the layout is nice and the traffic around the outside area is good. While others think that landscaping is just about the arrangement of plants in a room, it is actually more than that. For this reason, it is wise to use a landscape expert to make sure everything is perfect. Surely beautiful scenery will inspire you when you see what House Weekend Sao Paulo has to offer.
As we all know, Sao Paulo is a busy city that tourists flock to for its beaches. The owners wanted to have their own weekend home in the central region of Sao Paulo. It has a swimming pool, solarium and garden, which are the main elements of the project. The rest of the program is complementary and includes a bedroom, a small apartment for the home, and a place to cook and receive friends. Since the maximum height permitted by law in the city is only six meters, the planners considered the new “ground floor” to be its height.
This area received sunlight all day and will be an attractive place for the home. The pool and solarium were arranged as parallel volumes. It has two columns that were rented in the area of 1 meter or more between these volumes. Constructively, the pool serves as a solarium balance. There is a gap of 12 meters between the two main supports, with beams on one side that support the pool and on the other with beams that support the solarium, which also suspends the lower floor.

The entire house has unique details that make it environmentally friendly. But one of the most interesting design elements is the outside staircase, which can be seen in the picture above.
Instead of digging the land and creating steps out of solid concrete, the designers created a floating metal staircase. This seems to float above the lush green below. With this design, the plants can grow underneath.
From the inside, the landscaping can be seen exactly as in this picture, in which a work area with a view of the ineffective staircase. It feels like the owners live around the forest because of its greenery, doesn’t it?
Light and rain seep in through the openings of the stairs which help that Plants underneath. Because of this design, plants, insects and even animals can use the greenery and reduce the house’s impact on the environment.

This is the pool area under the structure. It’s also surrounded by plants which makes it look even more refreshing.
Aside from the pool, there are other water features around the house as well, as you can see here. Isn’t it nice to see a waterfall in the garden? If my guess is correct, this has to do with the pool area as well. But I’m not sure if you can swim here.
