This modern Brazilian home is located in a rural area, 40km away from the city center of Brasília. The topography has a slight downward slope towards the back of the lot, where a valley with native vegetation dominates the view.
BLOCO Arquitetos Associados is an architectural practice founded in Brasília in 2008 and directed by the architects Daniel Mangabeira, Henrique Coutinho and Matheus Seco. We work in projects with different scales, from big architectural schemes to small interventions and interior design. We wish to create projects that are inspiring to people and that can interact positively with the city.
Our office works as a collaborative space. We organize ourselves in different groups for each project as to incorporate different talents, interests and ideas to the creation and development processes. For us every project should express the specific characteristics of its program, client and context, without following styles or pre-defined models.
We are interested in the debate about temporality, materiality and permanence of the building and its relationship with our architectural heritage.
