Lounge Y by Nommo Arquitetos
Nommo Arquitetos We designed the Lounge Y project in the middle of a lovely landscape in the northern part of the Florianopolis island in Brazil. This luxury residence is made of exposed concrete, contrasts with its lush surroundings and, with almost 1,500 square meters of interior design, is very closely connected to the surroundings.
The construction site is a common area of three houses from the same family on a closed plot in the north of the island of Florianópolis. In the same area there was an ancient covered but open barbecue area. The family grew and therefore a more comfortable lounge area was needed.
The project is divided into two volumes: a social block (concrete paving stone) and a support area (white wall block)
In the social block, more rustic materials such as slatted reinforced concrete, wood-clad demolition and wooden frames were used, which underline the simplicity of use: barbecues, parties, children's runs, in short family celebrations.
The topography of the property has been adjusted by correcting the slope towards the rear forest, creating a plateau that leveled the garden and building, expanding and integrating the indoor and outdoor spaces.
The forest creates a natural backdrop for those who arrive into the house, but becomes the main protagonist when the user enters the place. In order to achieve this commute of character, a 14 meter long south bar blocks the view of passers-by, while a north bar is turned in a row and reveals the forest landscape.
Side openings define the access and frame the view.
Within the social block, the room is divided into living, kitchen and dining room. The kitchen consists of a custom-made pizza oven, grill and a large wooden counter with a refrigerator, oven and stove. The roof consists of a demolition wood inlay, which is supported by a watertight plate, styrofoam and steel girders.
The supporting block, which extends along the parcel boundaries, houses toilets, water tanks and a storage area.
