Best Project of Private Residence
About the project
A monolith gently lying on top of the hill, emphasizing the view of the slope and the breadth of the landscape.
Built entirely in black pigmented reinforced concrete, the structure follows a modular rationality. The main wall of the access facade receives the load from beams positioned transversally to the rectangular shape of the building, at the same time that they are supported by a row of 7 pillars. The modularity of the structure enables the composition of openings, all positioned on the same facade and framing the panorama, also sectoring the internal spaces.
The house makes reference to TrES-2b, an exoplanet orbiting the star GSC 03549-02811 located 702 light-years from earth discovered on August 21, 2006 by the Trans-Atlantic Exoplanet Survey (TrES) in the constellation of Draco. Reflecting less than 1% of sunlight because of its extremely low albedo, the planet was identified as the darkest exoplanet ever discovered.

Applicant and authors of the project
Abner Juan Bobato, Brazilian architect, designer and visual artist who found in architecture the most purified way to transmit his perception of the world. Born on September 7, 1995, he realized during his childhood the power of drawing and how to use it to portray and idealize his imagination. Today, architecture is intensely transforming the abilities obtained in his early years of life, finding form and materiality through his architectural projects, design, and visual art as universal communication.
