As with any project, the architectural team had to start this project, focusing on the natural environment of the earth. They decided to build a house on the highest point of the site, giving residents a complete, stunning views of the beautiful Brazilian sunsets and surrounding natural landscapes in the gated community of Quinta da-Baroneza.
Perhaps the most noticeable visual cue on the exclusivity of the house are double slab floor and the ceiling, forming a kind of sandwich with large panes of glass. These specific parts of the building with a raised floor 50 centimeters create a visual image of the building, hovering above the ground.
