The house is implanted in a strip of land between the sea and the mountains of the Serra do Mar. Both ecosystems are extremely exuberant. The mountains are covered with the native Atlantic forest (the most bio-diversified ecosystem on the planet). The beach is quite small, and scarcely occupied. The sea water is crystalline, protected by small Atlantic-Ocean islands.
A large parcel of land inside a condominium of few houses with no physical separation among them, makes the natural elements the main aspect to be considered for the building arrangement.

Despite its central urban location, the marginalized area of Grotão within Paraisópolis is effectively separated from the formal city. Within this isolated zone, increased erosion and dangerous mudslides have designated the site as one of many high-risk zones in the city – a primarily inaccessible void in the otherwise dense urban fabric.

At the higher level is the house. The metal cantilever looks for lagoon views Its undulations talk to Pampulha. The built volume mixes structures: Steel, concrete, wood complement each other defining supports, closures and roofs. The internal integration of the coexistence space connects to the exterior bringing inward the idea and the distance of the Belo Horizonte’s edge.

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.

Coworking is a versatile meeting, communicating and workbench table system providing modern workplaces. The layout of the tables demonstrates a thoughtful approach to the floor plan and generates this way a functional network. The scheme is centered on the provision of small work units for self employed and studios; obviously sharing tables and space with others. “Pto de contato” is a platform of experimentation, a deliberate contrast to usual offices, offering huge tables and informal spaces for sharing.

The multi-use complex proposed for this 32.000m² lot aims at creating not only a new architectural reference for the region, but also a new destination for the city. Adding three different uses – retail, office buildings and modular offices – the new complex creates a landmark in the landscape, values the surroundings, and establishes a new shopping destination.
