Text description provided by the architects. The architecture of Casa Uruguai, signed by Occa Urbana Arquitetura, is an authentic summer house, located in the Condomínio Sense at Xangri-Lá beach. The lot, following the model of the local gated communities, is 15x30m with a south face privileged by the beautiful views of the lake. The residence is spread over two floors, with a generous social space to receive family and friends, a super-equipped service area for visitor requests and a cozy and warm intimate space. The insertion site has conditions that further favor this beautiful project, the sun surrounds the house during the day grilling us with an incredible sunset, reflected in the lake and providing unique sensations.

With an indoor-outdoor connection as a premise, the house is organized into two bars. The first floor includes a living room, with double height ceilings, integrated with the gastronomic area, a guest suite and the other service areas of the house. Starting from the principle of connecting the gastronomic living space with the outdoor living space, and therefore, with the view of the lake, the veranda was developed at the same level as the house, ensuring comfort and amplitude to the social spaces. On the second floor there are four suites, two of them to the south, with a view of the lake, and the other two to the north, with a view of the mountains of the coast. Finally, there is also an intimate terrace for hours of reading and relaxation under the sea breeze.

As barbecue and mate tea are a cultural hallmark of the state, the integration of spaces was intentional, with the aim of fraternizing in privileged moments of family life. In addition to the traditional barbecue, a Uruguayan parrilla brings all the charm to the composition. Large floor-to-ceiling openings make the residence well lit and ventilated, thus ensuring energy efficiency.

The elegant architecture has volumetry in pure form and materiality as its strong point. Natural elements, exposed concrete, irregular yellow miracema natural stone and wooden elements (in the form of slatted panels) make up the aesthetics of the residence, resulting in beauty and contemporaneity with functionality, always relevant premises and great importance in the creation of office projects. The window frames, with a minimalist black profile, are the counterpoint of the balance to the natural textures. Designer Juarez Cruz’s interior design follows the concepts of the exterior, with porcelain tiles referencing exposed concrete, woodwork in a sleek wood finish, and sophisticatedly designed gray base furniture.
