Trecase House This contemporany house was designed for a family with grown children. It’s located at a high standard private beach condominium, 180 km from the city of São Paulo, Brazil. The total area of the house is 900 square meters and has 4 levels, basement, main floor, upper floor and roof deck. In the basement there is a wine-cellar, storage room and utility room. On the main floor we have the social area, with living room with 8 meter high ceiling, wood fireplace, two guest bedroom ensuite, powder room, dining room, home theatre, laundry room, kitchen, and a door less garage for up to four automobiles. Still on the main floor but the outside area, there is a sitting area with a 6 meter high ceiling, barbecue, gazebo with a gas fireplace, swimming pool, spa with waterfall, wet deck and a water fountain. The swimming pool is surrounded by a very nice garden and a wooden deck with sun chairs. There are 3 huge palm trees on the deck, typical Brazilian trees. In the huge garden area there is a soccer field, for the father and son of the house that love the sport. Moving up to the upper level, there is the master bedroom for the Mr and Mrs, closet for them and a balcony where the view is of the back of the house and the golf course of the condominium and the mountains from the forest (humanity heritage). The daughter and son bedroom suites also have balconies but with the view for the street and a view of the ocean and beach. Another two bedroom suites are also located in the upper level, for guests. Also there is a home-office and a TV room. The stairs have a glass ceiling that makes it a huge skylight that brings that natural light all the way to the basement. The stairs is the connection between all floors. The last floor is also the roof, but to use all the space we decided to make it a roof deck. There is a wooden deck with a hot tub and a built- in propane barbecue. From the roof deck we have the privilege to see a beautiful sunrise from the mountains and a fabulous sunset at the ocean. The house has on its conception, recyclable materials, reforested wood and solar energy to heat the water.
