Casa Eugenia

Location: Lagoa Santa, Brazil

You’d never know it to look at this artful and unique home, but it’s partially made from repurposed metal sewer drainage pipes. In addition to the framing and railings, architect João Diniz and his team planned other aspects of this minimal cottage with efficiency in mind, allowing for lots of natural light and air circulation. The bas relief on the side of the building is by the artist Jorge dos Anjos.
