São Paulo-based studio Isay Weinfeld has designed an elegant 3,767 square foot, two-story simple but elegant residence called The Vertical House. This simple house especially aimed for the young single man, and this house located in São Paulo, Brazil. For further information, here is the explanation from the designer: “Having a full program to consider – besides the usual rooms, the client wished for a guest room, a gym, a swimming pool and caretaker’s quarters -, we decided to build the house vertically and to evolve the rooms upwards on split-levels: a basement, four above-ground floors and a rooftop terrace. Down in the basement are a small gym and sauna. On ground floor, set between an entry court where a cutout in the roof brings natural light in and lets a Yellow Ipê tree to rise up through and grow, and a tiny walled-in garden and swimming pool in the back of the plot, a lofty, double-height living room is the core space in the house. On mezzanine level, dining room and kitchen overlook the living room below, while a small terrace in the open looks out onto the street. One level up is the master suite with an east-facing balcony; another level above is a guest bedroom with a west-facing balcony. Finally, on the uppermost level, a rooftop terrace crowns the densely packed structure.”  ?
