From the architect. The site has strong countryside characteristics, between growing fields and scattered constructions, connected by winding roads and paths which arise some delicate urban issues.

The progressive shape of the volume in a sober language that dialogues with the site, shows outwards now the house is organized, while establishing a promenade from the lowest level – the street- up to the highest and private space of the house, the studio.

In the ground floor a straight stair connects with the 1st floor, illuminated by an extensive sky light that separates the master bedroom from the other bedrooms, common bathroom and the studio.

A sober but expressive shape was explored both in and outside. Sucupira wood and white stucco coexist in the same way as the house to the site, in a calm disquietude.
