As soon as you see this residence on the southern coast of Rio de Janeiro, you realize it is the kind of house you fall in love with. This luxurious summer property was designed by studio Fernanda Marques and it contains everything you might expect from a luxurious house. Taking into account the natural beauty of the surrounding area, the house had to integrate; thus, one of Brazil’s most stunning landscapes defines the building’s architectural approach.
The steel structure, the wooden outer shell, the timber with its essential part in the aesthetic arrangement are only some of the aspects that contribute to the generally inviting environment in which every little thing seems to exist in order to enchant the eye. The large glazed windows are the elements that provide integration between the internal and the external areas; all the rooms communicate with the unique landscape.
The obvious mixture of rustic and high-tech makes you aware of the furniture and decorative pieces that give a contemporary air to the entire place. Nothing the eye meets obstructs the perfect view of the sea and the mixture of sophisticated and contemporary finishes and ones that are more rustic makes the entire atmosphere seem unreal. You have the impression that you are in one of the most luxurious hotels on earth, not in a home where even the details are ideal.
