House in Bom Jesus

To meet the clients’ requirements we designed a black and white house with large terraces overlooking the city.
The terraces’ drawings led us to involve the house in a heroically suspended ring.
Between this ring and the house a garden embraces the oak-trees. On the house’s south and west sides the terraces’ horizontal subbase planes could be aligned with the skyline.
The two-storey high living room was placed between these two events.
The ring will probably be painted in white. The house was to be a wooden box but due to maintenance issues it will now be coated with patinaed zinc.
