Both sides of the 957 square foot home (89 sqm) feature sections of ‘Cobogo’ (a Brazilian void concrete block), that provide the homeowners privacy without sacrificing the natural light.

Inside, the main area is completely open plan, with the living room, dining room, and kitchen all sharing the same space. The blocks create an interesting pattern and are almost like walls of art.

A simple and sturdy dining table separates the living room from the kitchen and is attached to the kitchen island to provide more food prep area if needed. Black kitchen cabinets have been used to create a strong contrast to the dining table.
