Solar da Serra House (2014) by 3.4 Arquitetura located in Brasília, Brazil | The Hardt
Solar da Serra House (2014) by 3.4 Arquitetura located in Brasília, Brazil. The site is located in a residential condominium in the outskirts of Brasilia, where residents seek tranquility and greater contact with nature, averse to the urban context of the city center. Two guidelines were important to the project: the steep declivity of the terrain, and its location within a natural preservation area, with specular views of the mountainous landscape that surrounds it. The compact residential design was materialized as a concrete prism which was oriented to provide uninterrupted views of the landscape. Moreover, its implementation contemplated respecting the natural terrain, where the volume of the house simply rests, preserving its original slope. The programme is minimal – a residence for a single resident, with a simple and modulated plan developed into exclusively dimensioned spaces: living room and integrated kitchen, office, bedroom, bathroom and an independent laundry area. All spaces open to the horizon, providing continuity between the interior and exterior, and a dynamic spatial perception throughout the day.
