American style houses: 65 projects inside and out
The concept of the American house follows a different model of Brazilian constructions, but some aspects can be applied in Brazil, be it in the aesthetic or functional question. We can see that the decorated houses have a smaller construction area for Brazilian companies, so optimizing the interior and choosing a more sustainable architecture is one of the strengths we can take on in the construction industry.
Most American homes are made with wooden frames and drywall. In this way, the masonry can be replaced by plaster separations. Not only do they offer higher working speeds, they also offer more space and lower costs compared to conventional masonry.
In terms of urban design, it is inspired by cardinal directions such as north-south, east-west. The streets are orthogonal and the buildings follow these parallel axes with shared plots of similar size. Because urban security is greater, projects do not need walls or gates. This type of architecture also takes into account the integration with the other residences in the area.
The houses have some traditional elements in appearance, like roofs sloping down on various levels, covered with shingles shingles . Another strong feature on the façade is the horizontal lines, which are marked at a distance of 30 cm between them, which has the function of imitating the wooden boards. The frames around the doors and windows complement the sturdy air of an American house, just as the columns at the entrance express its elegance.
American style does not have a clearly defined line, and that can change depending on the region.
