This house was built in a very high inclined terrain, next to an environmental protection area, in the city of Rio Acima, Minas Gerais. “The idea was to make a central basis box with the balconies suspended, giving the idea of a frame where the landscape would be involved”, explain the architect.

The mix of styles in the rooms was used in a way to realize the wish of the owner: a big space where you could receive all of your friends and family in a cozy way. So, the dining room, living room, balcony and kitchens are integrated.
