bruno dias arquitectura has organized the design around a main axle which not only solves the programme, but also operates as a border element between the social and the private areas. the one-story house is elevated from the ground, while maintaining some connection points that lead directly to a garden. the applied structure creates small patio areas, that further connect the residents with the natural surroundings.
the exterior outline is defined by two concrete slabs with organic shape, generating a variety of diverse permeable interior areas. in this way, a sense of freedom is created, and the areas are not limited by walls, but span out, with nature serving as the only boundary.
