Country houses can range from the simplest to the most sophisticated, but what is sought in them is a different, relaxing atmosphere, different from the hectic and oppressive pace of big cities - greater contact with nature and the pure air of the mountains.   They must be attractive to receive friends and to rest, prone to dealing with animals and often contemplative.   They are often located in mountainous regions and the climate is colder.  In northeastern Brazil, they bring us into direct contact with roots, stories, food and traditions, especially in São João.  It is essential for architecture to rescue all this identity mixed with the particular feeling of our contractor. We have dozens of examples to present, but we have selected the most representative ones from our portfolio here for you.
