'Grid House' by forte, gimenes & marcondes ferraz ARQUITETOS, photo by Ale Shneider

This modular dwelling in the timbered mountains around Sao Paulo was designed by the Brazilian forte, gimenes & marcondes ferraz ARQUITETOS.

Actually, there is no house. One could rather call it an inhabitable garden – nature and architecture intrinsically meshed one into another, yet clearly showing the role played by nature and by construction. Clear, precise, the wooden grid fits into a small valley to promote the spot’s original ‘function’: the house floats over the paths to the hill’s summit, the jungle and the river.
