Text description provided by the architects. The architecture of the House 28 presents as an extension of the arid and lush landscape from the Cerrado Biome. A family that sought tranquility and connection with nature commissioned this urban refuge located 10 minutes away from the national congress of Brasilia.

Varieties of perspectives are revealed while walking through the house. The rooms have different heights that confirm a spatial hierarchy. Extensive walls, coated with polymer mortar, define fluid spaces and openings positioned in all directions integrate the living areas. The large windows frames are mostly positioned east west and the walls north south. This orientation allows a dramatic natural light effect during Sunshine / sunset and open views across the house.

Independent bedrooms facing east ensure privacy for family members. All three suites have a balcony and a metal trellis for climbing plants. The Windows there, when opened, serve as seats either for the bedroom and balcony.

The house has mixed structure: concrete pillars and cover in metallic structure. Rainwater collected by the coverage is directed to an underground reservoir serving the garden irrigation during dry period. Solar panels heat the water and the pool throughout the year and tilting windows allow cross ventilation and natural light in every room.
