Name: Slope House 3
Architect: Milad Eshtiyaghi
Set on top of a picturesque hillside in a verdant rainforest of Brazil, the tiny A-frame timber cabin sits on a set of stilts, protecting and preserving the ecology of the area. The house is composed of two sloping volumes, presenting a signature triangular frame that puts a twist on the conventional A-frame cabin. One module accommodates the bedroom, while the other houses the common areas such as the kitchen, and the living room.
In order to keep the surrounding environment intact, Milad Eshtiyaghi has separated the dwelling from the ground, by building an elevated truss structure. Therefore, the natural terrain and the living species of the region will not be damaged and will continue to live under and around the cabin.
Since one of the client is interested in gardening, ther architect adorn a small garden inside the where create a large one under the main bedroom. To make sure that both the gardens and the sky can be seen from inside the building, Eshtiyaghi installed transparent flooring in the bedroom, as well as a sloping roof with a skylight.
I am not a big fan of the transparent flooring. But I have to admit the bedroom looks fabulous with the indoor and outdoor garden. Just like I am sleeping in the middle of the jungle.
