Text description provided by the architects. Placed where once there was a dune that blocked the view to the sea, the house takes advantage of the best ventilation, the exuberant view to the waves and counts on free leisure spaces to receive many generations of the same family.

Having concrete structure for the basement and the rest in relocation wood, levels differences naturally generate the pilotis space for the garage under the bedrooms area. With views to the beach and garden, the main block is made by a large room, which organizes the circulation and provides cross ventilation, picking the sea breeze up to the bedrooms distribution.

Generous circulations are explored here, protected laterally by trusses applied on wood structure. The use of regional materials, like the tala-de-dendê ceiling and Bege Bahia marble floor, reinforces its harmonic insertion at the landscape.
