Casa Atlântica is a minimal residence located in São Paulo, Brazil, designed by Acayaba + Rosenberg. In this intervention, the central space of the house was rearticulated by a double height in which the thick, square mass hangs loose, surrounded by the zenith light that bathes the interiors with a soft, homogeneous and changing light. In the void that reverberates white and the sound of the piano, two walls contain the staircase that reveals permanent abstract cutouts to the resident in the path between floors. The zenith light that penetrates washing the walls radically transforms the white and the space according to the climate and the seasons. The environment can take on a bluish hue on sunny days, gray on rainy days, orange in the late afternoon, in a constant mutation that reveals the subtleties of the light spectrum and its intensities on the absence of color.
