Alagoas House, Olho d’Água do Casado, Brazil

Brazil is a diverse place, and this is evident in architecture as well. Tavares Duayer Arquitetura was the office appointed to refurbish Alagoas House. A house that this refurbishment had to preserve the traditional expressions. “It helped us understand that the kickoff should be to enhance local culture by using regional techniques on the design and construction of a home and its interior.” the architect suggests.

Apart for the enhancement of the local culture of the area, the office tried – and succesfully managed – to create a comfortable house with all modern amenities. Thermal and ventilation systems were employed creating a more suitable house for one to live. In addition, the kitchen and the dinning room were reorganised to provide more space for the family living in. The result is impressive. Enjoy.
