The region is located at the foot of the one thousand feet high Mantiqueira Mountain, along the banks of Piracaia Lake.
Our attempt was to get integrated with the descending slope bringing about its attributes. The process was realized in sections.
The stone walls were built with the use of local techniques with rocks collected locally, originating a continuous but not straight line, for self-sustention, that forms the framing wall. Thus, three interrelated courtyards are formed outside the inner rooms of the house.
Out from the street there is only the view of the white tower which holds the whole infra structure and a 8x40 meters horizontal ruler comes up as the roof garden.
A first plateau comes in an intermediate level between the street and the house. This level takes you up to the roof garden or downstairs through a little tunnel leading to the entrance gateway that reaches the courtyard outside from the living room.
The suggested usage would be the mingling of many people in simultaneous activities .The conviviality spaces are gathered by the fireplace and ovens.
The house opens up to a second grass-plateau leveled with the pool. The construction of the pool and its solarium holds underneath a pool table room and a storage.
