Trancoso House by Todos Arquitetura
Trancoso House is a lovely beach house located in Trancoso, Bahia, Brazil, designed by Todos Arquitetura.
In our first incursion in Trancoso, Bahia, in the northeast region of Brazil, we projected the interior design of a 330 m2 house designed by Studio OR + K for seasonal rent. Having that in mind, it was necessary to keep a certain neutrality, but without giving up the rustic and chic atmosphere that is so striking in Quadrado, the main tourist spot in the village, where the house is located – and where it stands out for its white facade amidst the other colorful houses around it.
Most of the interventions were guided by the goals of highlighting the quality of the pieces produced by local artisans and reusing materials, starting with the canoe transformed into a bench, which stands in front of the house. Few elements, but of importance, came from other cities. It is the case of the cabinet made with demolition wood that arrived from São Paulo with a planned destiny: it would become a bar. The wall behind it was erected in the exact measure of its back, with the mission to protect it.
In the four en suites, in the bathroom, in the kitchen and in the large living room, the language is the same: simple materials, refined by local labor, give the rustic and elegant tone that permeates the entire project. Burnished concrete, copper, demolition wood, reused ceramics and the Bahia sun are enough.
