Canto das Águas


The design challenge was to conciliate a steep sloped terrain with the desire to explore the beautiful lake view at the back of the lot. Hidden from the street, the volumetry opens up to dazzle with the landscape. To overcome the slope, the house is developed in three floors: access level, superior level to host the bedrooms, and the inferior level to host the kitchen and social areas. Another important feature of the project is a circular patio which adjoins the house, offering new angles to contemplate the house and the landscape.
