BT House by Studio Guilherme Torres

São Paulo based architect Guilherme Torres has developed ideas which fuse the modern and the traditional. Guilherme’s own house, designed by the architect himself, bears a chequered wood design, a kind of brise soleil called muxarabie, which is a classic feature in Eastern architecture. It was later assimilated by the Portuguese, who brought it to Brazil. This element, with its powerful aesthetic appeal, was adapted to this residence in the South of the country, and acts as a wooden ‘curtain’, allowing air flow, dimming light and also serving as a security feature.
