Situated on a plot with a large number of native trees to be preserved and average slope of 30%, the the project suggests an intense dialogue with the existing topography and vegetation.
Considering the building area of 1200m², suggested by the client and necessary to house the entire program, we developed a project where people could have direct eye contact, despite being in different environments and levels of the house. This prevents the isolation and facilitate meetings with greater objectivity.
The program was arranged so that the collective spaces have a relationship with the larger landscape views and higher light intensity. Rooms and more intimate settings were positioned below the treetops, forming a courtyard with tree trunks.
The house was designed in mixed structure. Retaining walls in reinforced concrete and 2 gables also specifically serve for adjustment of some quotas of the land and anchoring to the metal frame, hoisted on the trees.
