Kopaivabaum residence of Macedo, Gomes & Sobreira:
The design concept of this residence in Brasília is mainly by their landscape: a sheet-rich Kopaivabaum grow in the plot and a small amount of “cerrado” vegetation (tropical savanna, typical of the middle part of Brazil), and to the East it overlooks a mountain range.
The main entrance and the blueprint of the system are determined by the courtyard designed for the Kopaivabaum.
The ground floor of the House is designed in an L-shaped block
There are the kitchen, the living room and the bedroom. You are a long porch, which extends along the premises connected with the cerrado vegetation.
So the patio plays the role of transition between interior and open space and protects the interior spaces from Sun and rain

The bathrooms are located in the western part of the ground floor and protect the bathroom from the Western Sun. Economies, guest bedroom and the garage/multi-purpose room are in the northern part of the L-shaped block, and they frame the courtyard.
The corridor is narrow but very well illuminated with floor to ceiling Windows
The prismatic block of the second floor defines the roof space (extended porch) and allows the double-height of living room
