Txai house / House

Txai house

Discipline: Architecture

Discipline: Architecture

The Txai house merges elements of the vernacular colorful Bahian houses with the precise lines of Brazilian modern architecture. To avoid excessive verticalization and still accommodate the entire necessity program, the house rests on two levels without any pavement overlapping. This solution ended up creating a new artificial configuration for the plot, as a second nature, which recomposes the original topography, now with the house settled. The Txai house offers a radical experience of integration between the inside and out. The tropical atmosphere of Bahia impregnates all of the spaces.
