The terrain of 1347 square meters located in the city of Cajamar is inserted in one of the regions of greater natural diversity of the state of São Paulo, the region of the Japi mountain range.

The surrounding Atlantic Forest reveals an enormous natural complexity with the abundance of species, forms and colors, exposing a system in balance and very delicate. Thus, the conceptual motivation of the project was to represent this stability through the balanced composition of two blocks with divergent directions, colors and textures, but with identical formats.

The proposal consists of a three-story building, which is organized on the terrain with little intervention to the natural topography. The two main blocks are positioned diagonally in order to achieve better insolation and ventilation conditions.

The terrain has slopes between 60 and 80 percent, in half the total area. More than 75 percent of the lot has restrictions or implementation difficulties due to the terrain slope. To reduce the movement of land, the building was positioned in the small area of regular topography of the lot.
