Two Beams House

Two Beams House

Project Description

The different levels and contrasting elements create the very rich spatiality that we aimed for. Each space in the house features three essential aspects: a view, ventilation and natural lighting. The idea was to create a home according to a new concept, breaking paradigms in order to design something innovative.

Supported only by two beams and four pillars, the house planned by the architect Yuri Vital in Tibau do Sul beach, Natal, Rio Grande do Norte, Brazil stands out for its design and innovation, at an affordable cost.

The one-floor residence is composed of two pavilions with a different in height of 1.5m, connected by a set of stairs, allowing a view of the ocean and nature from all areas. A void at the bottom, which is formed due to the difference in level, serves as a space for recreation, parties and meetings, or simply as a room for relaxation.Over the front pavilion there is a solarium, with an even more privileged view of the sea, as it rises above the level of the tree that provides shade for the lower pavilion, using nature to benefit the house.

Built with resistant materials in order to reduce maintenance, this house can be renovated during its lifetime without major investment. The use of concrete, glass, treated wood and anticorrosive metal emphasises the spatiality and volume of the house.
