Tikkanen Architecture

RESIDENCE – Serra Negra/São Paulo – Brazil

Architectural project

Completely constructed with stonework, on top of a mountain in the Serra Negra.
The social area with a 360º view opens to the beautiful vista of the South of Minas Gerais, another state in Brazil.
At the request of the clients, the construction has airs of Tuscany and, for that matter; it was the scene of a Brazilian soap opera set in Italy.
Aiming at sustainability, we used a solar energy system for the water supply and solar heating elements to heat the pool. All the stones were collected from the grounds of the property, avoiding the extra emission of CO2.
