“Do not cut a single tree”. That was the beginning of the initial meeting to discuss the project and the client’s wishes.
Situated on remote land filled with Pequizeiros, Angicos, Maminha de Porca, Maria Preta and other native trees of the terrain, the Goías region of Brazil was the site for the construction of a ground floor house. An open plan, maximum integration between the inside and the outside a low budget were taken into consideration to accommodate a contemporary young family.
The pavilion is built around an independent steel structure (45×8,2) in modules which some of are bedrooms, others communal areas. The living room is the focal point, with great glass openings on the front and rear ends.
The architects drew inspiration from the “Case Study Houses” program. The pavilion shape suited as the right form for the implementation of the architectural principles for adaptation (shading and cross-ventilation) to the severe climatic conditions of Brazilian Central-West region, which is made up of extremely hot and dry weather during the most part of the year, in addition to a few months of heavy rainfall.
