the town of nova lima in brazil, just south-east of belo horizonte, offers panoramic views of the surrounding valley and mountains. local architect marcos franchini, in collaboration with gabriel nardelli, have conceived a small guest house design that takes advantage of this site’s lush landscape.

marcos franchini and gabriel nardelli plan for the villa to be positioned on an angled plot of land, embedded in the steep terrain near an existing home amidst the trees and greenery to offer a serene setting to relax. the humble residence is formatted as a wooden five beam structure, accompanied by stone and concrete columns for support; with wrap around windows on two sides that lookout over the hilly topography. the one-room residence is outfitted with the essentials: a kitchen, bathroom, and quaint sleeping area, avoiding any frills so that the inhabitants can focus on, and enjoy the nature that surrounds them.
