The design of the house is based on the idea that culture, landscape, architecture, interior design, furniture and art form a whole. The architectural precedents of Brazilian Modernism and particularly Paulista Brutalism are apparent in the design of the house. The site is a beautiful piece of land that falls gradually away towards a lake and a rolling green landscape in the distance. The landscape is the project’s primary asset, and the architecture is a lens through which one experiences it.
