Alan Chu and Cristiano Kato, architects at escritorio.arq.br made living in a can possible. Located on an island on the North coast of the State of São Paulo, Brazil, the Box House came up from a very simple structure: one-story building with stone walls and clay roof tiles. After the extension, a compact volume appeared on the rock: a white suspended box that shelters the bedroom, offering great views of the continent and the São Sebastião Channel. Under it, at street level, are the living room, kitchen and bathroom. Keeping the coordinates pure and simple, the interior reflects a clean, yet warm aesthetic. Moreover, the architects respected nature and proved an eco-friendly behavior: the wood used on some doors and windows, staircase, shelves and furniture are leftovers of material used for scaffolding and molds for the white box reinforced concrete structure. In the end, the impact caused by the image of concise volume, in comparison with the large rock’s amorphous exuberance, gives it a spectacular sensation.
