This eco-friendly Bahia House located in Salvador and was designed by Studio MK27. The basic idea of this project is to keep cool in the hot Brazilian climate. For this purpose designers have used traditional techniques and materials, such as clay for the roof, wooden ceilings, sliding latticed wooden panels. The building is organized around a central patio to make natural ventilation in all the spaces possible and give beautiful view in a grassed garden. This idea of home is very unusual nowadays, because there is no modern technology in Bahia House. But the result is a contemporary house, where dwellers will feel comfortable despite the hot, shiny climate.
