Grabowsky House

The Grabowski house was designed with a green roof in order to build a visual and virtual bridge between the slopes that define a valley in the countryside of Rio de Janeiro. The biggest challenge was to create a veranda covered by the upper floor without any pillar. The lack of these vertical elements eliminates the boundary between interior and exterior, between roofed and unroofed areas, reinforcing the connection of architecture to the nature. The solution for the engineer query was the use of the Vierendeel truss. That kind of truss forms the exterior structural skeleton of the house.
