By the lake in Brasilia, Lago Paranoà, I designed and built an open air lounge and refurbished an old boathouse. Together with the builders we transformed the boathouse into a small apartment, with a vertically opening window that can be used as a bar when open. The open air lounge has a wooden roof structure and the roof is covered with palmtree hair. Floors and built in sofa are made of cement and local pebbles.
Near to the lounge, we created a large round concrete fireplace. The fireplace can also be used as the base structure for a tipi. We spared holes to put poles for a tipi construction in the concrete floor.
