Texture and materials create a contemporary contrast in Corten House 

Casa Corten is an urban house located near the largest park in the city of São Paulo, Brazil. The site is long and narrow, and its residents, make use of the rooftop and, especially, the park itself for leisure.

The front facade is made of Corten weathering steel. The dialogue between the rusty texture on the outside and the stone, wood, white mortar and the glass build the space. In the ground floor, there is ample room with a ceiling height of 5.2m and four folding doors that completely open out to the deck and external fireplace; in the living room, a free wooden volume houses the kitchen and utilities program. The three bedrooms are located in the second floor.

On the rooftop of the house, there is a wooden deck. This space functions as a sun deck with a heated pool and a view of the city of São Paulo.
