The history of the House Star
  The Star House was built by hand by the counter Augusto Gonçalves de Castro, basically using a hacksaw and tools (reportedly) created by himself. There is no record of his having performed any work earlier or later than this. The construction work was lonely and happened overnight. Despite not having any formal training in carpentry and architecture, the corresponding angles are identical inside the house.
Adept theosophy and enthusiast Esperanto, the universal language, Augustus sought to apply this philosophy in designing the house. The five-pointed star and the pentagon appear throughout the house, because they represent, according to Esperanto, the five continents. Downstairs the rooms communicate through portals leaked by five-pointed stars and the first floor, the rooms are built over an area of ​​circulation in whose center there is a guardrail in the form of a pentagon. The lining of the upper floor forms a five-pointed star and the tacos floor downstairs form a pentagon. Another highlight found in the basement of the house where the central column of the home rests a receptacle shaped like a pentagonal glass. With the exception of the doors and windows, no right angles in every house. It was thought that the coexistence of all who would live in the house was intense.
 The Star House was built in the city of Curitiba in Brazil Alto da Glória neighborhood in the 1930s and that because of it, the street was renamed Dr. Zamenhof Street. The house was inhabited until the 1990s.
Without any similar, Casa da Estrela, an important representative of wooden architecture, traditional technique of Curitiba, was donated to the Catholic University of Paraná (http://www.pucpr.br) heirs, the brothers Idalina Carlos Augusto Azulay and Moses de Castro. The preparations for the transfer of the building has already started. The house will be studied, cataloged, drawn, photographed, numbered each of its parts disassembled, transported, reassembled and restored in Curitiba Campus (Old Meadow) PUCPR.

Video and final design Star House

The Star House is a unique example of wooden architecture of Curitiba. The name is a reference to the shape of the building, whose plant is based on a five-pointed star. Built in the 1930s by the expert accountant Augusto Gonçalves de Castro, the house was home to the family until the 1990s. In 2006 the family formalized the donation of the building, which suffered from the actions of weather and vandalism, to the Pontifical Catholic University of Paraná (PUCPR). In partnership with the Cultural Foundation of Curitiba and subsidized by the laws of cultural incentive, the LST developed throughout the project to restore the House Star, which included the dismantling of the building, the removal of local transport and reconstruction within the University. It took six years of work around the project, which is signed by the teacher of the course of Architecture and Urbanism PUCPR Claudio Forte Maiolino. The video release about the project was produced by Press Office PUCPR in partnership with the School of Communication and Arts of the University. We interviewed teachers from the Architecture and Urbanism of PUCPR Claudio Forte Maiolino and Nancy Valente, formed by the Architect and Lucile PUCPR Amaral.
