Surrounded by trees and large natural stones, architects at FGMF designed a single-story home with a direct connection to the landscape that still reserves private spaces for its owners. The home was built around a structural wood grid that was elevated because of the area’s high humidity level. The residence is split into smaller living modules separated by outdoor spaces where trees live and grow. The main module houses an apartment for the owners and spaces for entertaining, sleeping and bathing. Atop the lot’s highest hill rests a “leisure pavilion,” which has the site’s best views.
