Architect Flavio Castro of FC Studio in São Paulo, Brazil embarked upon building his very own private home, a project he aptly entitled the ‘Box House’. The house is a two-storey, one bedroom abode, where most of the rooms are equipped with sliding walls that open up to lush courtyards. Castro chose to utilise the largest amount of buildable land possible for his flat-roofed creation, which limited the use of glass on two of the facades that come to the neighbours. A perimeter wall of concrete and sliding metal doors hide the property from the residential neighbourhood in which it stands, on a rectangular corner situated plot.
