Two interconnected volumes of opposite characteristics and materials form the basic structural composition of the house. Arranged along a longitudinal axis to the site and set up in a way not to interfere with the topography, these volumes take advantage of the shade provided by the surrounding trees. The living area is situated naturally in the space between the ground and the crown of the trees.
The main volume, a hall of 9.40 x 4.00 x 3.00m, is defined by a light wooden structure (jatoba tree) and enclosed by polycarbonate alveolar panels, which due to their special transparent characteristics provide an interesting relation with the surrounding environment.
The service block concentrates the equipments and installations of the house such as kitchen, laundry room, bathroom and water and gas reservoirs. This volume, opposed in every way to the other volume and conceived as a rock deeply rooted to the ground, grows directly from the soil with thick brick walls. It protects the main pavilion from the setting sun in the afternoon.
