dayala+rafael creates a case study house amidst the brazilian dense rainforest

brazilian architecture firm dayala+rafael got commissioned to design a house ‘without cutting a single tree’, in a remote area of the brazilian cerrado. a densely vegetated site, full of pequizeiros, angicos, maminha de porca and other native trees found in the area, the architects designed a ground floor house with an open plan and maximizing the relationship between the inside and the outside.

referencing the american case study houses, specifically the eames residence, the senator pavilion house by dayala+rafael created a contemporary residence with an exposed structure, bold in its lines and aesthetics. the pavilion was built with an independent steel structure, in modules that become bedrooms or communal areas and sit around the living room.

glazed facades cover the front and rear of the house, providing ample views of the surrounding greenery. the pavilion is shaped in the most suitable geometry for the implementation of the architectural principles for adaptation. the house is designed for optimal shading and maximizing cross-ventilation, adjusting to the severe climatic conditions of the brazilian central-west region. extremely hot and dry during most part of the year and a few months of heavy rainfall.
