The program, developed for a couple with their children ia almost a wabi sabi effect (the beauty of imperfection, according to Japanese philosophy) was explored in the choice of all materials: in the marbles of the floors and in the woods of the walls and linings. The most important thing was to bring all the natural elements to a brutalistic essence, creating a welcoming feeling that perfectly matches the climate of the city, particularly cold in relation to the Brazilian tropical climate
UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
One of the main points of the project was to create wide open spaces, surrounded by the native lush green and at the same time create an intimate atmosphere. To achieve this effect, the house has several "skins" that undress as the architecture unfolds. On the ground floor, a large wall of "cobogos" - prefabricated concrete partition elements, typical of contemporary Brazilian architecture.
