Curator Hala Younis chose to focus on Nahr Beirut (Beirut River) and its watershed, evaluating its bedrock and the challenges that come with it, such as the “fragile nature of territory, scarcity of resources, and commodification.”

Located in a priviledged neighbourhood in São Paulo, Brazil, the Jardim Paulistano Residence presented a challenge in the project's early development stage: how to fit a complex 6458ft² residential program in a 102ft² X 344ft² terrain, building integraded spaces? The solution was to separate the uses according to the intimacy levels demanded by each one of them. The groundfloor holds common and reception areas such as living room, dining room and kitchen, all integrated with a green external area. The arrival to the first pavement is a private room that distributes the circulation to the home office and suites. Finally, the last pavement holds a deck with a superior living room, spa and pool. The three pavements are connected by an opened staircase. The glass guardrails value the view while going up the stairs. ​ To make all of the environment work hamonically, the uses were projected to fulfill its functional needs and simultaneously generate the very defined volumetries in t… continue
