Unusual House in Brazil

Architects Alan Chu and Cristiano Kato designed this simple yet unusual house near Sao Paulo, Brazil. Taking it from ordinary to extraordinary, the architects took the old, existing single-storey mountainside house and redesigned in into one home with two contrasting volumes – a three-by-five-meter white box, balancing atop a winding retaining rock wall that lures you into the lower part of the house. The focal point of the upper volume is a large picture window, covered by a functioning wood privacy panel. This organic, rustic natural wood detail is echoed inside the home, in the doors, windows, staircase, shelves and furniture. Alan Chu and Cristiano Kato
