CHU, Alan  and  KATO, Cristiano. Casa Box: Ilhabela, Brasil. ARQ (Santiago) [online]. 2010, n.75, pp.30-31. ISSN 0717-6996.

This dwelling is the result of the remodel of a small earthen-wall house situated 100 msnm with two rocks facing the sea and making up part of the access to a development. A white concrete box of 3x5 m  (bedroom) is suspended to incorporate distant views of the coastline.  Perpendicularly under this box, the stone volume houses the kitchen and bathroom and incorporates the front and back patios. Elements of the wood scaffolding are reused for the doors, windows, stairs and furniture.

Keywords : Architecture-Brazil; single family dwelling; condominium; remodel; stone; concrete.
