Text description provided by the architects. A house designed for a particular family, even when one always creates a project suitable to anyone.
Tending to be more feminine than masculine, the house embraces a 50-year-old fruit tree (a Jabuticabeira) at the center of the plot.
It shapes a small courtyard towards which every room opens: a porch, a living room, a dining room, a kitchen, a study room and a bedroom. The bending in of both of its wings aims at closer views of the tree and also of themselves, as in two small houses overlooking each other. The morning sunlight bathes the children bedrooms, and hits the facade with a fold on the concrete wall, which defines the entrance of the house. Other large trees, such as the Tipuanas, Jerivás, Palmeiras and Pitangueiras remain in the edges of the original plot.
To benefit from the view of these trees tops, along with the views of the city, a swimming pool and a terrace fill the entire rooftop.
