Bridge house

Best Project of Private Residence

About the project
The Bridge house, in Floripa, connects Santa Catarina Island to the continent in two ways — due to its position and its construction elements. Overlooking the Cacupé sea, the house faces the sunset, prioritizing the view of the continental sea and the mountain range. To mitigate the effects of the sun, huge steel eaves lined with galvanized railings were designed, the same as those of the Hercílio Luz Bridge, the main postcard of Florianópolis.

Applicant and authors of the project
Located in Belo Horizonte, Brazil, Tetro Arquitetura is formed by architects Carlos Maia, Débora Mendes and Igor Macedo. The office's professional practice is based on the careful study of the premises and conditions presented by the location and the client, always seeking for a unique and irreplicable solution to each project. Fundamentals such as the integration with nature, the use of apparent materials and the exploration of empty spaces are characteristics that permeate all the work.
