franchini + bom conselho design 'cabana oitis' elevated within mountainous brazil

located on a slopy site of nova lima, brazil, ‘cabana oitis’ by marcos franchini and nattalia bom conselho, is private weekend house for a couple who enjoys mountain biking as their favorite hobby. the site is ideal, providing pleasing views to the natural surroundings and featuring biking trails right around its corner. the building includes an external extension for biking equipment storage.

marcos franchini and nattalia bom conselho have chosen a simple rectangle plan for their design, in order to optimize the assembly and construction process. the use of the steel structure is due to the large production of it in the region, and the use of the cyclopean concrete in the foundations is explained by the large presence of rocks in the natural terrain and the intention to embrace it in the building.

the façade of the building has a burntwood (shou sugi ban) covering and corten steel doors. in addition, tissue slider panels were designed at the balcony, in order to protect the residence from the intense wind of the slope. the house opens itself to the mountains, instead of opening to the street, generating a cozy and intimate space.
