Located on a rainforest glade of difficult access in the Mountain range of Paraty, Rio de Janeiro, the project of the house was premised on dry methods that provides comfort in a warm and humid environment.
The constructive party considered from the outset the use of lightweight and pre-fabricated components – easy to transport and low generation of residues – such as partitions in cement panels, wood frame structure and metal tiles with thermal insulation as outer closure.
The house seeks to frame the best view for each ambient: the intimate part opens to the enclosed forest, the social part to the clearing and the valley.
