The project combines a traditional Brazilian language of clay roofs and a wooden construction with the lightness, boldness and modernity of metal structures and trusses. The central courtyard boasts transparency and permeability, forming the social core of the house. Designed as a single floor spread out over two levels, the project divided the architectural volumes to better integrate the structure with the garden and the surrounding natural landscape. Reminiscent of a traditional basement, the raised floor of the house accommodates the electric/hydraulic installations and equipment in order to facilitate maintenance.
