FLAVIA MACHADO + COLAB

We are a young company that develops projects for Urban Planning, Architecture and Design. Even diversified, all have the same concept in common, that is, visualizing the architect with the responsibility of doing projects that meet human needs and aspirations.

 

Each element of each project must be an expression of the intended life in a building. The strength of our production lies in the geographic and cultural diversity in which we work. We create projects in different locations around Brazil and around the world. They are specific to each place and culture - they are inspired and developed based on the historical, cultural and social characteristics of their places. Celebrating the unique character of each place, we create buildings that transcend the idea of belonging to the place.

We believe that architecture comes from a vision related to ways that can affect people's lives. It is our duty to design buildings and living spaces that meet human needs and aspirations. For example - a school, above all, should be a wonderful place for learning. Or a restaurant should be a cozy place that invites you to rest and meet. Each element of each project should be an expression of the intended life in a building.

This is the list of principles that forms the basis of our company's work philosophy and approach for architecture and urban planning.

 

Shaping the public space

One of the most important goals of architecture is to create meaningful, vital and inclusive social spaces. As architects, we are responsible for shaping not only the program of a project, but also for giving a greater civic role in housing and community enrichment.

Responding to the essence of the place

 

The strength of our production lies in the geographic and cultural diversity in which we work. We create projects in different locations around Brazil and around the world. They are specific to each place and culture - they are inspired, and developed, based on the historical, cultural and social characteristics of your site. Celebrating the unique character of each place, we create buildings that transcend the idea of belonging to the place

Architecture with a purpose


We believe that architecture arises from a vision related to ways that can affect a person's life.
It is our duty to design buildings and living spaces that meet human needs and aspirations. For example - a school, above all, should be a wonderful place for learning. Or a restaurant should be a cozy place that invites you to rest and meet. Each element of each design should be an expression of the pretended life in a building.

Designing Responsibly

Well before becoming a fashionable term, sustainability has been a guiding principle of our work. As architects, we are committed to addressing issues of energy conservation, ecology and renewable materials. We have to use resources efficiently while we meet the goals of our customers.

 

Sustainability, in its essence, implies a mode of construction that is sensitive to geography and local culture. This approach not only addresses the important ecological goal, but also enhances the sustainability of building use and value to its owners. Whenever possible, we choose to work with regional building materials and use local manpower. We always seek the preservation of resources and build the maximum with the minimum

ENVIRONMENTAL RESERVE AT GOIÁS - BRASIL.

Integrated Architecture, Urban planning and Environmental Management Project for the Cerrado Environmental Reserve.

Projects have also been developed for the following buildings: Employee accommodation, cafeteria, laboratory, laundry, warehouse, gas station, technicians house and guest house.

The project aims a pre-fabrication of the structures and the elements of the seal. This would be faster and easier to execute. It also facilitates future enlargements.

The constructionsteps were developed with a 3D material for training local employees.

PROJECT VIDEO

RESTAURANTE LE MANJUE ORGANIQUE

O objetivo era tornar o espaço de jantar do restaurante tão agradável quanto um jantar em um jardim.

Deixar a natureza conquistar todo o espaço do pé direito duplo e usar materiais naturais criando uma sensação de aconchego, a mesma que sentimos quando experimentamos as receitas com ingredientes orgânicos e funcionais do chef.

 

As escolhas no projeto deram preferência à soluções simples, boas, naturais e criativas.

Somente plantas nativas brasileiras foram usadas para paisagismo.

A base da tinta é terra com corantes naturais, o teto é coberto com cortiça com selo de certificação FSC (madeira para reflorestamento), e os móveis de madeira são de reflorestamento ou madeira reutilizada (caixas de vinho e paletes).

GENESIS RESIDENCE

This project was developed for a couple who wanted a practical, single-family home where they would welcome their daughters, grandchildren and friends.


The challenge was to make a detached house on a 10 meter slope. But it was possible through very detailed and analyzed design to make it economical and comfortable.


The environments were distributed according to sun position, wind direction and proximity to integration spaces (living room, pool and kitchen)


The house has rainwater reuse, economical building systems and reused furniture.
