This amazing house from Brazil has a gorgeous view of the mountain range and a lot of elements in its design have been inspired by this. The house was designed by TETRO Arquitetura and was built in 2018 on a site with a slight slope and surrounded by native vegetation. A flagstone pathway leads up to the entryway which features this large void and a ramp with a set of stone steps. The main materials involved in this project are concrete, wood and stone and the house showcases them in layers.
Internally, the spaces are organized into two main sections. The leisure areas are placed at the bottom of the house and the private spaces sit at the top, this allowing the bedrooms to enjoy the best views and to have a serene ambiance and a soothing decor. The butterfly roof appears to be floating when seen from a distance thanks to the set of clerestory windows. Starting from the bottom of the house, the design highlights layers on stone, concrete, light wood and dark wood. They progressively complement each other all while taking advantage of the contrasts between them.
