Sumaré House / Isay Weinfeld

Isay Weinfeld Arquitecto designed the Sumaré house, in São Paulo, for a graphic designer who desired a “spacious house, where she could work, exercise, entertain friends and, of course, live in.”

More images and more about the house after the break.


Due to height restriction laws, the building could not exceed 2 floors, thus an underground floor was needed for the caretaker’s quarters and the atelier.  Both spaces open to a lawn so the feeling of being underground is forgotten.  On the middle floor, a few steps above street level, a sitting and dinning room open to a larger lawn.

In the living room, a long étagère displays the owner’s collection, ranging from works of art to design and vintage objects.  The home also includes a swimming pool and a dance floor for the designer to practice ballet routines, in addition to entertaining areas, two bedrooms and all other rooms suitable to a residence.

For her private bedroom, the space is enclosed only by a screen of pre-cast concrete blocks, allowing the designer to see the city skyline in the distance.  On the top level, a spacious wooden deck provides ample room for an outdoor entertaining area.
