The renovated CCF house in São Paulo, Brazil preserves beautiful graffiti made by the owner's neighbor artist. Brazilian architecture firm GOAA reorganized the oddly-shaped plot to fit a larger open space, a generous rooftop terrace and new wooden volumes.
Located in the Vila Anglo Brasileira neighborhood of São Paulo, the existing property was in need of reorganization in order to maximize its spatial potential. The transformation began by removing all the existing informal construction, followed by the reorganization of openings. The architects established a stronger connection between interior and exterior spaces, and incorporated a A rainwater cistern into the design.
The architects then added a rooftop terrace and connected the kitchen to the patio. The wooden volumes, containing new programs, stand out from the existing structures. A street-facing blind facade was kept in its original form, preserving a large work of graffiti of great value to the client.
