Set in Vila Madalena, western district of São Paulo, a very intensively socially and culturally agitated region, this 400 m² residence was designed by architect Monica Drucker for a couple with three small children. The project occupies the whole lot.

At the top floor, the three suites are integrated through a veranda covered with a pergola and glass. This clear and pleasant space, besides providing the necessary privacy for the bedrooms in relation to the neighboring building, is useful for the children, who can play there safely. A walkway, protected by a glass railing, leads to the suites, passing between one side of the stairway and the intimate room.
