At the same time it contrasts with the almost untouched nature, with structure of concrete and large glass openings, the house built on an island of Paraty, Rio de Janeiro, fits into the landscape as an extension of the beach, and wall separating the property from the sand, the house of 840 m2 highlights two boxes horizontal concrete.
The first holds the living room, kitchen and service area. At upper volume are the bedrooms, protected from the sun by retractable panels of eucalyptus twig. Since the space facing the mountain there is small internal courtyards, giving freshness to the property. The two boxes have the balance of eight meters in volume of 27 meters.
Two large of reinforced concrete walls, 40 cm of thickness on the sides of residence, serve as support for the slabs and beams. Part of the structure rests on these walls, creating conditions for the balance.
