Material Focus: Enseada House by Arquitetura Nacional

08:00 - 4 August, 2016
Material Focus: Enseada House by Arquitetura Nacional, © Marcelo Donadussi

This article is part of our new "Material Focus" series, which asks architects to elaborate on the thought process behind their material choices and sheds light on the steps required to get buildings actually built.

The Enseada House project was developed by the Porto Alegre office of National Architecture in 2015 and is 317 square meters with an interesting interplay between volume and materials. We talked with the architect Paula Otto, one of the designers to learn more about the material choices used in this project and the role that these choices played in the design concept.
