Campo Grande-based architectural practice, Alex Nogueira, has designed the 1220 project. Completed in 2013, the small home is located in Campo Grande, Mato Grosso do Sul, Brazil.

The search for simplicity, bowing to the canons of the past , the clear intention of using architecture as a path of territory and form of expression of ‘difference’… These are some of the requirements that guided this design project.

According to the architects: “High quality bidder soil binds the plot more generously on the bottom, where a glass door which accounts for almost the entire rear facade, gives access to the deck, and continuous view of the garden, the place where heaven and a yellow sculpture made with the leftovers of the metal structure (profiles ‘I’ Gerdau) dominate the micro landscape. This large aperture for background contrasts sharply with the hermetic and closed front, both for privacy and solar protection, where a cloth horizontal metal of brises addresses these and other issues.

“The structure is apparent and mixed, both concrete and metal profiles are part of the aesthetic proposal, both for its inherent visual appearance and explained either by the vain and balances achieved, a game that tries to be subtle and objective.

“Integrator with a strong desire to plant boils down modulated in a large environment that splits into three basic needs: live, feed and rest, as usually happens, the furniture play a key role in setting and ‘fragmentation’ of these spaces. The bathroom is the only room isolated, and even the hydraulic wall dividing the kitchen, their access is returned to the room.”
