Textual content description offered by the architects. The “Abrigo Baixo” is a part of 3 projected buildings on a web site within the valley of the vines, area of Rio de Janeiro: “Pavilhão” (the primary to be constructed, in 2016), “Abrigo Alto” and “Abrigo Baixo” deliberate in 2019 and finalized in 2022. Every of them has 30m2 of inside space and has an area reserved for sleep – closed off with a light-weight curtain – a room linked to the entrance deck, a small kitchen, and a completely outfitted lavatory.
The valley shelters comply with the identical development system and layouts: spans of three and 5 meters with helps starting from pillars in wooden to ceramic masonry partitions. The strong wooden framework helps the roof in thermo-acoustic trapezoidal tile panels, which lean over to kind eaves of as much as 1.80 m. In additional managed environments (bedrooms and bogs) a skinny slab of bolstered concrete works as a ceiling, making a double layer of insulation from the skin.
Within the part that overlooks the valley, the “Abrigo Baixo” is closed by a panel of plywood panels that open at two completely different heights, referring to the standard system of farm doorways.
