Collection of modern, minimalist, and eco friendly architectural design for your home inspiration
Brazilian architect firm Marcio Kogan have completed a beach house design, made of two reinforced concrete boxes sit atop each other. The Paraty House is connected on the mountainside of one of the islands of the colonial city of Paraty and Angra dos Reis.
From the mountain, the house is outwarding almost onto the beach in an 8m cantilever. The house finds balance in the topography of the land, creating an extensive open doorway and living space in the practically untouched nature. Residents can access the house by boat. On the inside, the modern beach house features a furniture collection showcasing 20thcentury design, including works by many well-known artists.
The lower part of the house contains the living room, kitchen and service area. The continual internal area has a 27m span and huge glass windows to take advantage of the view of the sea. The same entrance stairs also lead to the upper volume that houses the bedrooms. In the front part of the house, retractile panels of eucalyptus sticks protect the bedrooms from the sun. The areas that face the mountain have small internal patios with zenithal lighting, and use exposed reinforced concrete, which grants a striking texture to the walls.
The entire top of the house is covered with terraces, used as observation decks for the residents, and as a garden for sculptures, medicinal plants and edible herbs.
