Café House

Best Implemented Project of Private Residence

About the project
Café House is located in the middle of the cerrado, in the interior of Brazil. A place with a rural landscape, where the image of red earth and twisted tree trunks predominates. From where as in all of Brazil's territory, coffee is an invitation to a long conversation.
The house, while establishing a connection with the residents, was a response to reading about the place. The earth walls directs towards the view. The terrain remains untouched and the topography remains the same. The trees were not cut down and now establish new relationships with the built volumes. They were implanted in the original dimensions of the land and between them, a stepped garden was developed.
