Terra House by Bernardes Arquitetura
Terra House is a pigmented concrete residence located in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, designed in 2015 by Bernardes Arquitetura.
Casa Terra arises from the intercalation of parallel walls made of pigmented concrete that are perpendicular to its central circulation axis. The articulation between these components generates spaces while defining residential functions and creating patios that open to the main garden. The closure between the vertical (walls) and horizontal (slabs and floor) planes is made with large glass panels that dilute the visual boundaries between the house and the landscape. The route along the central circulation reveals a succession of openings and closures while offering constant visual contact with the exterior.
