CLUBHOUSE IN VOLTA REDONDA
IN CONSTRUCTION
VOLTA REDONDA, RJ, 2014

The downward slope of almost 15 meters from the street level, the best solar orientation and the need to have a fast construction method are the facts that have directed the design decisions. Th proximity of the site to a big steel production plant have made us decide to design the building entirely with laminated exposed steel structure. All the rain drainage systems is designed with circular section tube structures and were made aparent. We were interested in exploring the beautiful views of the existing hills around the lot, so we wanted to treat the building as a “transparent box” that would allow the free view through most of its internal spaces. We have created different levels in the lot and positioned the various elements of the program in each one of them. The clubhouse, positioned in the higher part of the lot, has a view over all the complex and to the landscape around.
