ARCA was named by local people as it came as a boat amidst the Brazilian Atlantic Forest. On the off chance that truth, on a more episodic level, it’s an earthship venture, that originates from a wish to imitate a particular Brazilian indigenous house typology (Asurini, Médio Xingu) and be a stand alone protest with insignificant effect to the encompassing.

The Galvalume (carbon steel + aluminum + zinc) modules were amassed nearby in one and only week and too can be effectively disassembled and revamped on another area. The inside timber divider are just 3 cm ticks as they are inside strengthened by steel-bar that pack the entire structure.

ARCA is situated on a waterfall Perequé, on a fringe with a national park Parque da Bocaina and ten kilometers from a beguiling pioneer city Paraty understood for its social legacy and regular fortunes.
