Linhares Dias House by DOMO Arquitetos – Brasilia, Brazil

A structure you wouldn’t necessarily want to live in – everything a little too much on show – Linhares Dias House, Brasilia, Brazil is nonetheless an incredible, bold piece of design. DOMO Arquitetos take a leaf from the Brasilia Book of Modernist Design, creating a confident concrete structure based around a stacked box form. However, whilst the build appears to be a simple, uniform arrangement of rooms, the design is actually a lot more complex with all kinds of nooks, corners, walls, doorways and corridors dividing up the space.
