Carqueija house was designed by Bento + Azevedo studio founded in 2005. The house is located in Camacari, Bahíra – Brazil, harmonizing with its surroundings by its simple prismatic volume. In order to use the best orientation for a house situated in tropical region, it closes up from the western street side and opens up to a garden, a private and harmonic space. Western facade is therefor composed of narrow windows and external sun-blinds that protect from the sunlight, whereas the eastern facade enables fusion of interior and exterior thanks to large windows and sliding doors. A sun deck widens optically the living area surface and supports a harmonic connection with a garden, where owners can enjoy a swimming pool and garden with barbecue facilities.
