Nature turned into a house
That’s what NI.acki’s creatives Charlotte Taylor and Nicholas Préaud came up with, imagining what a house integrated into the Brazilian jungle would look like. ‘Casa Atibaia’ is a representation of a delicately suspended modernist house, defined by gentle curves and completely enveloped by spectacular views of the São Paulo forests and built on the banks of the Atibia River.
It is a fictitious experiment that seeks to embody the feeling of living inside with the illusion of being outside thanks to a large glass pane subtly covered with linen curtains so as not to lose the impressive views. The designer duo describe the project as a tribute to Brazilian modernism, directly inspired by the “Casa de Vidro”, also known as “Casa de Cristal”, by architect Lina Bo Bardi.
Following modernist geometric principles, the structure comprises a volume of concrete and white glass, with ramps that revolve around a central tree. The house is gently elevated by boulders that protrude from the ground and act as natural pillars. The pre-existing rocks also extend inland, with spaces carved into their shapes.
