Goiânia-based architectural practice, Dayala+Rafael Arquitetura, has designed the House Aldeia 082 project. The single-family home is located in the gated community of Aldeia do Vale in Brazil.

The luxury Brazilian home was designed for a young couple with two small children. The property boasts many eco-credentials and was built with sustainability in mind.

According to the architects: “The 1350m2 lot chosen is of singular beaty and sits in front of several lakes and areas set aside for preserving native forests. The great challenge of the 460m2 construction was to provide the owners with maximum integration with the landscape, without relinquishing their privacy. This was achieved by using the natural slope of the lot and installation of a leisure area on an elevated plateau four meters above street level.

“The social sector communicates with the beautiful landscape through enormous glass areas, with six meter high aluminium doors that permit the total opening of the front facade. The large vertical plane of concrete helps protect against the sun during periods with greatest sunlight. The glass used has an internal film that mitigates the passage of heat. Motorised roller curtains provide privacy to the owners during more intimate family moments.”
