Cà Madeira

Boavista - Cabo Verde

The building leaves the leading role in the play to the enchanting landscape of Boa; a simple quadrangular volume with terraces defines its external surface and its relationship with the horizon through a thin, delicate and dynamic frame. The abstract representation of a house on the tree pushes the serene completeness of the dwelling into the realm of dream, play, into the fantasy of tireless children.
Inside, the power of stereotomy is somehow suspended by a full-height cavedio, also working as a staircase, which welcomes and keeps the deep blue sky; in the rooms, the raw materials are balanced by refined details and abstract surfaces. The night lighting of the facade dissolve its consistency; almost weightless, the terraces dance in the darkness.
