to stand alone

This low impact home ARCA was named by the locals as it arrived packed like a ship in the middle of the Brazilian Atlantic Forest. In fact the dwelling is derived from a wish to mimic a specific Brazilian indigenous house typology (Asurini, Médio Xingu) to be a stand alone object with minimal impact to the surrounding.

Designed by Atelier Marko Brajovic the shell is a self-supporting structure made from Galvalume (carbon steel + aluminium + zinc) modules which were assembled on-site in only one week and as well can be easily dismantled and rebuilt on a new location. The internal timber walls are only 3 cm thick but reinforced by steel-bar that compress the whole structure.

A house can host till two couples with kids, has a fully equipped kitchen, bathroom and a generous open space living space.
