Seashore Advanced / Estúdio MRGB + ARQBR Arquitetura e Urbanismo + BLOCO Arquitetos
Textual content description offered by the architects. The “Na Praia” advanced was designed as an leisure middle on the sting of Paranoá, the factitious lake that surrounds the Plano Piloto of Brasília. Nonetheless, public and direct entry to the lake continues to be very restricted, regardless of current efforts by the federal government to enhance the waterfront. The distinctiveness of “Na Praia” is subsequently supported by the intention to definitively acceptable a part of the immense water mirror that borders the protected city venture and remodel it right into a form of “shoreline” within the Federal Capital.
A part of the constructions within the advanced is scenographic as a result of they’ve a short lived nature, with their length restricted to the occasions calendar. Their design is linked to the creation of “eventualities” whose themes change every season. The opposite a part of the advanced consists of mounted infrastructure and everlasting buildings. With the intention to design the everlasting portion, aiming to reinforce the bucolic scale of the town with out altering its character, the corporate liable for the venture was prepared to pick and rent structure companies that, of their understanding, had been aligned with these rules. Subsequently, the structure companies BLOCO Arquitetos, Estúdio MRGB, and ARQBR had been invited to develop among the architectural tasks that represent the “mounted” a part of Na Praia.
The Seashore Tent venture was assigned to BLOCO Arquitetos, the Entry Pavilion to Estúdio MRGB, and the Store and Cafés, Gastronomic Village, and Bar had been assigned to ARQBR, finishing the gastronomic advanced of the park.
Preliminary conversations and discussions among the many architects resulted in some premises that guided the event of their respective tasks, aiming to determine, whereas respecting particular person design approaches, options that expressed austerity and unity within the constructed ensemble. This was achieved by means of the adoption of a recent architectural language, utilizing sustainable supplies built-in into an agile and rational development system able to addressing the assorted calls for of the totally different stakeholders concerned within the course of. The principle constraints for the alternatives made on this part had been the extraordinarily brief development timeline (100 days) and the connection between the price range and the provision of supplies and labor at the moment. Thus, a steel construction primarily composed of welded tubular profiles was chosen as probably the most appropriate development resolution contemplating the constraints, value limitations, and accessible time for the venture execution. Pure bamboo was chosen for creating shading components, ceilings, or particular structural makes use of.
Equally, it’s price highlighting the dear contribution of the landscaping venture in creating unity at Na Praia. The vast majority of native timber had been preserved, whereas different cerrado tree species had been launched together with unique vegetation and palm timber that tailored properly to the native local weather. Developed by architects Mariana Siqueira and Cláudia Pellicano, the assorted landscaped areas and the creation of pathways had been liable for enhancing the panorama design and, significantly, the connection between the designed buildings.
Acesso Pavilion | Estúdio MRGB.
The preliminary impression of tourists at “Na Praia” is formed by the apprehension of areas and experiences obtained whereas transferring by means of the Entry Pavilion designed by Estúdio MRGB. On this regard, the workplace sought a design that’s “easy and austere, whose horizontal character, like the enduring works within the metropolis of Brasília, subtly affirms its discreet presence within the panorama.” The constructing’s important perform is to welcome guests and information them to discover the assorted points of interest of the advanced. With a frontage of 42 meters, a depth of 15.50 meters, and a peak of 4.5 meters, the Entry Pavilion takes benefit of the low affect on foundations ensuing from the usage of metal, permitting the construction to be constructed on a big raft basis. The rhythm and cadence that specific the architectural language of the constructing are established by the strict modulation of the construction, with spans of three.5 meters and seven.0 meters internally within the longitudinal route, 4.25 meters transversely within the sections adjoining to the entrance and rear facades, and seven.0 meters within the central span, additionally within the transverse route.
The aspect partitions and the brises designed with the intention of incorporating bamboo as the primary closing and sealing ingredient create the meant seaside environment desired by the builders of Na Praia. Equally, the ceiling of the Pavilion, consisting of linear bamboo items, permits for the filtering of sunshine, filling the central part of the pavilion with diffuse pure lighting. That is achieved by means of the usage of translucent compact polycarbonate coverings positioned within the roof, central span, and all through the whole constructing. Relating to this system and necessities, the constructing homes the ticket workplace, restrooms, help areas, and a VIP room. The enclosures of those areas had been principally product of marine plywood, apart from moist areas that required further set up infrastructure.
The principle intention of the venture was to awaken in customers a variety of sensory elements ensuing from the mix of the structural rigor, delicate lighting, and the rusticity of bamboo as the first materials shaping the venture’s materiality.
Retailer and Cafés, Gastronomic Village, and Beer Bar. | ARQBR
The constructing housing the shop and cafés utilized a steel construction. Within the flooring plan, there are 7 spans of 5 meters within the longitudinal route and a couple of spans of 6.5 meters within the transverse route, leading to a modular structure of 5 x 6.5 meters that guides the group of the interior areas. The construction, painted in white, contrasts with the pure bamboo, which is current within the ceiling, the doorway doorways to the shop, and the brises.
The buildings within the Gastronomic Village, which home food-related operations, observe the identical materiality sample as the shop and cafés. On this case, nevertheless, the structural spans are totally different, leading to modules of 4 x 8 meters. The design of the beams that span the 8-meter spans can also be totally different, as flat triangular trusses had been needed for this span.
The Beer Bar stands out for its use of bamboo as the only structural ingredient. The complete construction is generated from the composition of triangles, which type beams and pillars, making a cohesive structural meeting that connects to the bottom with out touching it. That is achieved by means of rebar rods anchored in small concrete bases.
The rationality utilized within the selections of buildings and development processes was geared toward associating the meant “seaside ambiance” for the village by means of the usage of pure bamboo, as desired by the pageant’s creators. Lastly, the Retailer and Cafés, Gastronomic Village, and Beer Bar, positioned round a sq. that welcomes guests, are interconnected by means of supplies and scale, emphasizing the human dimension that characterizes the structure and urbanism of Brasília.
Seashore Tent | Bloco Arquitetos
The Seashore Tent was designed to accommodate a restaurant, bar, kitchen, an space with showers for beachgoers, and public restrooms. Inside the advanced, it’s the closest constructing to Lake Paranoá, positioned on the lowest elevation of the leisure advanced, because the pure topography gently slopes in direction of the lake. Subsequently, the venture was additionally conceived to function a visible landmark for a portion of the ensemble.
A fundamental structural grid of three.00m x 3.50m was outlined to accommodate the required variations in clear spans for the totally different applications of the constructing. The identical part of 12x12cm for the steel profile was used for many of the beams and columns, whereas the lavatory and kitchen areas utilized bigger steel beams to attain clear spans of as much as 7m. Within the central space of the eating corridor, the 6-meter span is achieved by means of a conventional gable roof construction with transverse structural components and bracing product of steel items with the identical part because the columns. The roof of the eating corridor capabilities as a pure “exhaust” for decent air by means of cross air flow between the open gables on the west and east sides, aligned with the prevailing winds in Brasília. Its ridge, the very best level of the development, reaches a peak of 8.80 meters, making its form function a visible landmark inside a predominantly low-rise, single-story constructing ensemble. Its perform as a “reference level” within the panorama can be noticed from the water mirror of the lake.
Pure bamboo was utilized in varied methods, together with ventilated brises or ceiling shading, open pergolas, pergolas coated with glass, and finishes for ceilings underneath insulated tiles. Light-weight enclosures product of cementitious boards or plasterboards outline the enclosed areas. The sand used within the “scenic” landscaping close to the lake was additionally used as a flooring materials for a part of the eating corridor. In that space, the location of tables alternates between coated and uncovered areas, organized immediately on the sand or on concrete flooring.
