Cerrado House was built at the foothills of Sierra da Moeda, a mountain range in the state of Minas Gerais. The three-bedroom house is a rooftop pool and a wide staircase that leads to the rooftop terrace. The rooms are right under the swimming pool (see also our project Aalborg Acqua Centre) and have views to the sierra and its savannah of twisted trees; its north and west sun being protected by wooden louvers.

Seeking the plasticity of basic architectural elements, the project also exalts an underestimated and threatened biome: the cerrado (or Brazilian savanah). There is no landscape design: the house sits on a found landscape, whose immensity and vistas are best seen on the pool terrace.
