Architecture Design of Earth House
Description About The Project
Earth House designed by TAY Arquitetura Ecológica is an impressive project which is more ecological and sustainable, aiming to reduce impacts on the environment. In the search for a natural result, using earth resources, it decided to build the walls of the house using rammed earth. This ancient technique is becoming more and more widespread at the present time. Thanks to the richness of soils and colors available in the soils of the region, 50% of the walls of the house built with rammed earth. Also, on the grounds of the house, it was possible to find yellow earth; in the neighborhood, red and purple earth.
In addition to this, the house settled to allow a wide and spectacular view of the surrounding mountains from the living area, especially at the highest point. Despite the challenge of building on such a sloping relief. In this way, the architect presented solutions to make the implantation viable. Thus opting for a suspended structure, which allowed less movement of the earth in the place and the flow of rainwater to its natural course.
On the other hand, other natural resources are used at the Earth house, such as the sun and the wind. The first keeps the house well-lit during the day, through skylights distributed throughout the roof and generous openings for windows and doors. Which eliminates the need for artificial lighting until twilight. The sun is also responsible for heating the water in the bathrooms and kitchen. And for keeping the water in the pool warm.

The Earth House Gallery:
Text by the Architects: Earth House (Casa Terra) is located at the foot of a hill in a closed condominium, Solar da Serra rural condominium, 20 km from the National Congress, in Plano Piloto, Brasília – Federal District. It was designed to be the home of the architect who designed it, with her husband, the landscaper, and two children. The construction stages, from project conception to execution, can be understood as an exercise in the techniques proposed by the architect in her own projects: more ecological and sustainable, aiming to reduce impacts on the environment.
