Located in Balneário Camboriú, Brazil, Greenhouse is a new building at Felissimo Exclusive Hotel which aims to link architecture and nature. It does this through new technologies that harness the natural context, abiding by the hotel’s sustainability principles.
Greenhouse is situated on a slope, so Jobim Carlevaro Arquitetos opted to embed the property into the slope rather than avoiding it. This means that the project is accessed by a side staircase leading to a door on the first floor. From the top of the stairs, the roof of Greenhouse is visible, reminding all why the project was named as it was: the roof is completely covered by vegetation, lowering temperatures within the building.
The project takes on a striking form thanks to its positioning on the slope. The lower level features a parking space that’s covered by the cantilevered first floor, jutting out over the ground floor patio. This level of Greenhouse is covered by laminated glazing providing sun protection as well as articulated wood façades made from cumaru wood slats.
