Cumaru wood and stone bricks enhance the natural elements that create harmony with the constant shade of the trees. The house has two suites, one of them, the main one, has a private garden. The living room and kitchen are integrated with the external patio, which brings another living room, a space that is the most used by the family. The toilet and pantry complete the spaces.
