The privileged view of nature was the core starting point for this project on the mountainous region of Nova Lima, State of Minas Gerais/Brazil. An adventurer couple chose us to create this special project in such an exclusive area.Save this picture!© Pedro KokAt first, the site’s high declivity seemed to be a big challenge, but it was also what inspired us to come up with the implantation’s solution. Exploring its natural landscape and the Elephant’s Hill view, it was possible to set the social floor at the height limit, above the trees. The street facade turned out to be the side elevation and the main facade now faces towards the side boundary.Save this picture!© Pedro KokSave this picture!Ground floor planSave this picture!© Pedro KokDue to the high declivity of the area, we were able to create a 3 level house. On the ground floor: garage, laundry, and storage. On the first floor, the office was fully integrated with the living room and a guests’ ensuite. Finally, on the second floor, there’s the hosts’ ensuite, with the most privileged view of the landscape.Save this picture!© Pedro KokA slight angulation to the east gave us the opportunity to have both the ensuite and the barbecue area to take advantage of the morning sun and the region’s predominant ventilation. At the same time, it helped to protect the ground floor from the sunset light using a concrete wall that blocks the sunlight inside the house. With the major orientation E-W, the house opens to the northern landscape. Extensive eaves on the north view’s perimeter protect the openings of the summer sun, at the same time as the glasses receive the necessary natural heat to naturally warm the inside during the winter.Save this picture!© Pedro KokWe requested that two trees were precisely placed by the topographer in the middle of the elevated deck that connects the house to the suspended heated pool. These also work as a natural filter to the sun’s radiation, minimizing the sun’s entry in the living room and the kitchen.Save this picture!© Pedro KokThe 25m pool, a client wish, is a fundamental part of the volumetric composition of the house. Sustained by two concrete columns, they elevate the pool 6m above the natural floor level, providing to whom’s inside the pool a view of the treetops and the imponent Elephant’s Hill.Save this picture!© Pedro KokWith the capacity to generate about 1400kW of energy per month through photovoltaic panels, the house is self-sufficiency on energy, warming the pool water and neutralizing the energy consumption from equipment and artificial lightning.Save this picture!© Pedro KokColumns and ribbed slab represent the constructive system. The use of apparent concrete in the house’s wall, swimming pool, and slabs brings the timelessness wanted to the project.Save this picture!© Pedro KokProject gallerySee allShow lessMartha House / NasoSelected ProjectsDubai’s Under Construction One Za’abeel Tower Holds the Longest Cantilever in the WorldArchitecture News Share Lead Architects: Photographs:  Pedro Kok Manufacturers Brands with products used in this architecture project Area:  4434 ft² Year Completion year of this architecture project Elephant’s Hill House / 24 7 ArquiteturaSave this projectSaveElephant’s Hill House / 24 7 Arquitetura ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOr Clipboard Elephant’s Hill House / 24 7 Arquitetura CopyAbout this office24 7 ArquiteturaOfficeFollowProductConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesSustainabilityNova LimaResidential ArchitectureBrazilPublished on January 27, 2020Cite: “Elephant’s Hill House / 24 7 Arquitetura” [Casa do Morro do Elefante / 24 7 Arquitetura] 27 Jan 2020.
