거대한 캔버스가 펼쳐진다. 건축주의 다양한 예술장식품을 감상 할 수 있는 프라빗 갤러리 하우스 카사쿠바는 예술작품을 위해 한발 물러선 건축환경을 형성한다. 소극적인 건축이 아니라 내부에 전시된 예술작품의 감상을 위해 컬러가 배재된 백색의 공간으로 디자인된다. -철저히 장식이 배제된 무형질공간- 총 3개층으로 구성된 내부 공간은 오픈 플랜으로 구성된 도서관이 위치한 메자닛층을 기점으로 그라운드 레벨에 리빙스페이스와 로비가 배치되며 독창적인 나선형 계단으로 연결되는 상부에 건축주의 프라빗 룸이 배치된다. 건축주의 개인적인 여가생활은 물론 손님 접대를 위한 게스트하우스로도 사용된다.

Just like Hong Kong’s Duddell’s, a restaurant-cum-creative hub which was recently featured here on Yatzer, Casa Cubo is yet another multifunctional development created with the promotion of the arts in mind. Commissioned by a couple of art collectors (who decided to remain anonymous), this minimalist three-storey building was designed by Isay Weinfeld, one of Brazil’s most prominent architects. Located in the affluent Jardins neighbourhood in São Paulo, Casa Cubo’s intended dual functionality comprises a private gallery dedicated to showcasing the owners’ art collection and a fully-equipped guesthouse.




Split across three floors, the uniformly white interior with its sombre polished concrete floors provides the perfect blank canvas to showcase the impressive array of works which include lead-and-fiberglass suspended sculptures by Antony Gormley, Marina Abramovic’s quietly unnerving Double Edge ladder, Tony Cragg’s voluptuous sculpture Secretions as well as Mona Hatoum’s Traffic suitcases, displayed against the backdrop of Tracey Emin’s quilt Message of Ascension. Apart from the artworks, Casa Cubo is also home to an impressive collection of midcentury furniture by a number of much-acclaimed designers such as Lina Bo Bardi, José Zanine Caldas, Gio Ponti and Alvar Aalto on display in the house’s two main areas: a high-ceilinged living room/lounge and an open-plan library located on the mezzanine above.


Surrounded by lush greenery, the house also features two distinctly different but equally striking floating staircases; a zigzagging steel staircase connecting the ground floor with the library and Weinfeld’s specially designed spiral Brazilian ironwood floating staircase which leads from the library to the three private bedrooms and a living room upstairs.


The 715-square-meters house was completed in September 2011.
