• The house is on a hilltop in Brazil
HLM House in Santa Maria in Brazil is made by Boa Arquitetura. The owners of the residence wanted to make the new building is harmoniously blended into the landscape, as if the building has always been in this place. The curved walls of white concrete became the starting point in the construction of the home area of 196 square meters.
The internal space is divided into two main rooms and a central part of the plan to deal with technical room and toilet. The first room is the bedroom, and the curved wall in the corner of the room creates the bathroom. In the second part I placed living room, where you can sit around the fire, meet up with friends at the table, cook or simply enjoy the beautiful view of the valley. Large windows allow you to feel the presence of the surrounding landscape inside the house, and they can be opened to combine the interior and exterior. Bedroom and living room are connected porch, located on the side of the hill. A spiral staircase leads to a green roof, which has a constant 18 cm layer of water beneath it. This avoids excessive heat in the summer and retain heat in the winter. Upstairs you can relax while enjoying the beautiful views and sunrise. Photo: Marcelo Donadussi
