Studio 3.4 Arquitectura has created a rectangular concrete home in Brazil orientated towards incredible scenery with the two long sides treated with glass walls and the other two designed out of concrete as a structure.The high temperatures of Brazil have led the architects to use concrete as a main material that could regulate the interior climate naturally. Half of the building has been raised from the natural slope on two round pillars, offering the conception of a floating elongated home.The simplicity of the conception is what generates the beauty behind this conceptual design.
“The compact residential design was materialised as a concrete prism, which was oriented to provide uninterrupted views of the landscape. Moreover, its implementation contemplated to respect the natural terrain, where the volume of the house simply rests, preserving its original slope.”
The natural scenery surrounding the property has been modified to better expose the home and provide expansive views towards the natural element.
The elongated space has been divided through a series of layered concrete walls which serve as a secondary structure as well. The spaces communicate on the sides which cna be protected from the exterior with sliding wooden panels.
The living room area is the most expansive, with large sliding glass walls on the side.
Once again the natural terrain is played to the architects’s advantage.
