/ PROJECTS / RESIDENTIAL / ROCK HOUSE – 27 images
Located in the mountain 120km from Rio de Janeiro city at 870m altitude, with 395sqm, is for use mainly on weekends and holidays.
In an land of approximately 960 thousand square meters, enjoying a privileged landscape, this rock is the point of better access and greatest interest and best views.
The living area was gently placed on this rock, making it the extension of the social area.
Metal structure and light slab were the choice not to “weigh” visually on the stone.
The bedroom block would also land softly on the ground, following its contours and avoiding cuts (regional ”addiction” led tractor to create undesirable “plateau”).
Such a privileged place required us to provide apertures and visuals in 360 degrees.
