Casa Jabuticaba is a Modern House located in Alphaville, Londrina, Brazil. It was designed in 2012 by Raffo Arquitetura. The building develops in the surrounds of a jabuticaba tree that has an emotional value to the owners. The 3 belonged to the house where the owner lived her childhood, and the architectural project became a childhood dream realization; to create a conceptual house in the surroundings of that beloved tree. The primary conceptual goal of the project was to house the natural illumination and ventilation throughout the building, minimizing the environmental impact of the construction and maximizing its interaction with the surroundings energies. A water drain system was projected to use the height of the house to harvest rainwater on the roof and distribute it throughout the house by gravity. On the dormitories facing north, a horizontal brise controls the sunlight access into the rooms, providing them with a more private environment. The internal flow is well defined and separates the intimate area from the social and service areas. The superposed volumes also emphasize these marked differences in forms in the facade.
