set in a mountainous region of brazil – known for its low temperatures – the ‘mororó house’ has been designed to offer generous internal spaces that provide residents with inviting atmospheres on cold days. recently completed by studio MK27, continuous volumes create a stark duality between an opaque block – where the living room is found – and the transparent area which houses a heated pool and sauna. an external wooden deck connects the programs, serving as a solarium to be used during winter months.

positioned on the lowest part of the plot, the building is surrounded by nature with pine trees and ferns populating the site. inside the home, openings are minimized and used as sliding doors, intensifying the integration between internal and external space. like the traditional chalets found in the adjacent mountains, warm timbers are used throughout, further fostering a comfortable and homely atmosphere.
