Tikkanen Architecture

RESIDENCE – Santo Antonio do Pinhal/São Paulo – Brazil

Architectural project

This construction on the top of a hill was implemented so that all social environments and bedrooms could see the Pedra do Baú (Chest of drawers rock), a tourist point in the city.

The levels of the floors of the house conform to the topography of the terrain and the surrounding forest has been preserved.

The roof garden above the living room has a terrace connected to the bedrooms and provides thermal insulation. To complete the sustainable solutions, we used solar energy and a large water tank that contains reused grey water.
