thick concrete pillars support tetro arquitetura's xingu house in brazil

Jul 11, 2021

‘the project is the result of an extensive research on design that sough a response to all of these site characteristics,’ notes tetro arquitetura. new elements are implemented as shiny pieces that contrast with the rusticity of the walls and the existing, dense vegetation. nature incorporates itself into the house in a poetic way, through the dilution of the boundaries between interior and exterior.

thick, irregularly-shaped concrete pillars support the building’s main body and enclose some of the bathrooms, staircases, the elevator and service areas. on the lower floor, over the natural terrain, the recreation area offers direct access to the cave, which has been transformed into a wine cellar. this level also includes the pool and a generous outdoors area, where residents can relax in the sun.
