The 110m² loft has a linear configuration in which the intimate area is separated from the social area through access from the balcony. The doors to the suites are camouflaged and, when opened, reveal rustic and elegant architecture. The volume is located in the middle of the lot, a location that allows a view of the treetops in the social area, creating a scenario to cleanse the soul.

The kitchen, with a unique white coating, provides a space for experimentation, whether in decoration or in the act of cooking. Handmade pieces, ceramics, and soapstone dishes adorn the space through an effective decoration that reveres the culture of Minas Gerais. The island is a workspace and quick meal area, as well as housing the mini fridge, stove, sink, and cabinets.
