Article source: João Diniz Arquitetura

The groove in the land packs the 6.5 m cube, the cantilever and the bridge link the two levels connecting the street to the ancient tree in the backyard. The artist’s dwelling is discreet highlighting art works and experiences in progress. Metal is visible, in the sculptures In cuts, bends, welds and paints scissors, brushes, crayon, gas and fire characters in a blend of home and workshop. In an industrial district of crude landscape among sheds, trucks and highways the house is a small factory of beauties.
