Beautiful Green-Roofed Brazilian Home is Made From Recycled Bricks
Bricks salvaged from a demolition project were used as the main building material for this project. Adding to its sustainability, the designers chose Cumaru hardwoods to give the house a natural, minimalist finish. Long narrow windows flood the interior with daylight, reducing the project’s overall energy load, while open terraces and horizontal louvers provide plenty of shade and mitigate excess solar gain.
While we don’t necessarily promote having second homes, if it is already a common practice among Brazilian families (and elsewhere), it may as well be done sustainably like the Quinta da Baronesa.
