FGMF Architects built Dom Pedro Complex in the city of Campinas, Sao Paulo, Brazil. The two-complete-club complex offers access and external areas for leisure and sports. Due to its exclusive traces and identity, the project claimed the ‘Hospitality’ award in the fourth edition of the ‘IIDA Best Interiors of Latin America and the Caribbean Competition’ under the International Interior Design Association [IIDA].
Dom Pedro Complex
For Dom Pedro Complex, FGMF Architects came up with the idea of a unique identity as well as independently of organizations of flows, spaces, and dimensions.
The firm also has ensured the relation with views and surrounding. Each unit has its own volume that can be differentiated through the variety of heights and dimensions. Despite the differences, the units always follow the rule of having two open faces which consist of main access and swimming pools with the views.
Interweaving Volumes and Continues Constructions
The differential of the constructions can be seen in the interweaving of volumes and the creation of continuous constructions. With this, the identification of each area will not easy to overlook even at a distance. Moreover, the differentiation creates interesting visuals for the users wherever they view the areas in the complex.
Meanwhile, the architects opted to retract the internal walls from the main unit volume and lined it with wood instead to preserve the main volume. With the exception of the main volume, other spaces were covered in cement, including the walls, ceilings, and floor, with a varying shade of gray to identify each environment.
The end result of this project is a unique and strong party for the two complex buildings, creating quasi-sculptural volumetrics.
In short, the complex reflects a clear relationship between the constructions and equal parties, but with a unique character for each. Aside from that, the unique character has a close relationship with the external program and nature nearby.
