Mandala Residence

This house’s architectural language comes from the adoption of a mixed (metal and concrete) structure that strongly influenced its final form and aesthetics.
Avoiding the adoption of the conventional roof solution, we used inclined concrete slabs being that the lower metal beams function as gutters draining rainwater through inclined metal columns.
The large spans, enabled by the metal structure, contribute to provide a feeling of lightness in contrast to the robustly solid concrete structure.
