House in Rio Bonito by Carla Juaçaba – Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Award winning architect Carla Juaçaba drops these residents right in the middle of the mountain and palm tree heavy eastern region of Rio de Janeiro – The “Three Peaks” nature reserve to be exact. If you like the whole outdoors indoors thing then Rio Bonito should suit. Thick open stone walls and ultra thin glazing give the sense that you could be set upon by roaming predators at any time. Isn’t that what ‘Home’ is all about though? An incredible structure, take a look in the gallery.
