Designing a house in Alphaville Pernambuco is not a trivial task: the topography is uneven, the setbacks are small and generally you want the maximum use of the area available for construction and the legal limitations are many, however the eaves cannot advance the limits of the area buildable - either you narrow the blade and its constructive potential or develop projects with built-in roofs.  It is not difficult to observe in the local typology residences with very short eaves on the sides, absolutely useless in protecting these facades.   Architect Eric Dayan's projects for Alphaville have this concern and follow a very clear and predominant line of reasoning in good projects for this condominium - which does not prevent him from presenting innovations and beauty in the houses under your responsibility for creation.  Check out the examples below for the most different solutions adopted for your demanding public, with properties structured in reinforced concrete, steel and containers, in straight or curved lines and in the most challenging terrains !

Alphaville Pernambuco

Once again featuring steel as the protagonist, "Residência Y" surprises with its simple and direct design, full of personality.  The robust steel beams give incredible lightness and unsuspected modernity to the set in recesses and protrusions in the extremes of the house, allowing the arrangement of huge panes of glass with peculiar geometry.  The house is completely adapted for people with special needs, featuring wide passages, automation resources, solar capture and an elevator, without neglecting a most generous gourmet area at the back of the land, including the swimming pool, but within the strict design rules of Alphaville Pernambuco that provide for  the percentage of green area allocated to the land on the edge of the 50 %.  The gourmet terrace has a barbecue, wood oven, upright freezer, TV and image projector to accompany the football classics.

Inspired by the heyday of modernism in Brazil, Casa Moderna follows some of the principles of the architect Le Corbusier, including the placement of a roof garden.  The simplified geometry of its facades gives it rationality with a certain lyricism, allowing the vegetation to stand out, but far from appearing simplistic.  A large front cantilever seems to free up the upper floor, as in the teachings of the French master, but without the use of pillars.   The brutalism of the concrete cools off as we enter the property, covered with woody porcelain tiles in the deeper cutouts.  Large glass openings allow the entry of more light. facade more protected from direct sunlight, while smaller openings minimize heat exchange on the most exposed walls.  The use of solar energy for energy generation, automation technologies and the reuse of rainwater complete the project.

A daring variation on Casa da Colina motivated by the adoption of principles linked to sustainability, differentiated aesthetics and structural economy led us to suggest this daring modification to the original project.  Here, the maritime containers and the Container modules make a post-industrial design prevail on the facades, reinforced by the metallic steel structure and the latticework between slabs on the side facade.  The coldness of the steel contrasts with the warm colors and lighting technology inside the residence and with mosaics of vertical gardens on the left side of the building.  Located on a steeply sloping plot of land, the property surprises you at the rear, where you can see the kitchen and gourmet terrace with high ceilings from the pool double rooms covered with solar protection brises that flood you with charm with a privileged view of the most beautiful sunsets.

Filling the entire useful area of the land, as much as possible, Casa Wave still manages to lavish sympathy with its beautiful winding balconies that resemble waves mixing curves and objectivity in a perfect formal meshing, uniting reason and feeling without detriment to modernity._cc781905-5cde -3194-bb3b-136bad5cf58d_ The double height of the living room is foreshadowed by the entrance door with a sense of continuity.  The cosiness of the building spreads through its facades and culminates in the pool reserved for the back of the land, complete with a shed that houses a gourmet terrace, a support bathroom and a games room.  The body of the building still houses a fitness space, intimate living room, and three suites with dressing room and balcony on the upper floor.  On the ground floor, the rooms, support suite, home office, home theater, gourmet kitchen and service areas share space with rooms well equipped with natural light.

Aiming at a good use of the land and a great integration with the natural environment, Casa Flora does not seek to merge with the landscape (as opposed to objectivity), but uses raw materials such as stone, large glass panels , contemplative areas and even a central courtyard to combat the stress of urban life, always offering generous opportunities for the sun and the surrounding trees.  The vertical accesses happen in the midst of the experience of good understand the day, there are double heights in the living room and on the stairs and this did not prevent the project from offering a swimming pool with a small beach and swimming lane, a gourmet space and a support terrace...   A The kitchen, which is also gourmet, is also spacious and pleasant. In addition to offices, a home-theater and large suites, the house also offers a panoramic library from where you can see the relaxing pool and its beautiful gardens.

Alphaville Pernambuco II - PE

A very complete house on a challenging plot of land in Alphaville Pernambuco II.  Having in the briefing four Suites, Panoramic Terrace, Home Theater, Home Office, American Kitchen, Living and Dining Room with double height , Games Room, Gourmet Terrace, Pool Deck, Spa and swimming lane, wet BWC with two parking spaces, among others, in a rough terrain and full of constructive rules, we opted for the modular look (like a LEGO) in the residence with built-in roof to make better use of the buildable area, in accordance with condominium regulations.  The result is seen in the rich volumetry full of withdrawals and recesses, light and shadows, full and empty in the best style of buildings from Puerto Madero.    The front façade projects defiantly forward, softened by double-height stained glass windows and contrasting colors highlighting human work in the natural environment.

Inspired by the architecture of European castles and incorporating neoclassical elements on the facades, Casa do Penhasco has the virtue of being able to communicate well with the surroundings, blending in with other residences on its most visible side (the entrance) and dialoguing with the gorge where defiantly fits in, like many medieval buildings,  Imposing and majestic in the proportions and cutouts of the roof, it also draws attention for its inverted layout with the suites positioned on the ground floor and kitchen, gourmet terrace and pool located on the rooftop. 

The swimming pool, by the way, has attractions such as an infinity edge, a glass wall to the terrace, a monumental opening over the void and a glass floor at one end.  Adding to this the large front windows from the double-height house, we have a fine example of architectural solutions for the most difficult demands.

Alphaville Pernambuco

Located in the highest part of Alphaville Pernambuco - phase 01, Casa da Colina is located on a highly uneven terrain with differences in level that reach more than seven meters in height, from the front of the land (highest) to the back.   The use of steel was presented as a structural solution to overcome difficulties and enable daring overhangs on the facade, in addition to being part of the constructive predilections of the inhabitants, with a taste for exposed concrete, large vertical gardens and large openings to capturing natural light and ventilation.    The formal rigidity is softened with these glass openings that allow for playful compositions in their edges and unique monumentality in the double height of the fabulous gourmet kitchen by the pool with suspended deck, unveiling a breathtaking landscape in anthological late afternoons.
