Jungle beach house in Brazil by ArqDonini
This incredible tropical beach house is set inside a fantastic preserved area of rain forest, on the coast of São Sebastião, just minutes from Barra do Una Beach, Brazil. Designed by São Paulo-based architecture firm ArqDonini this house respects the environment due to its construction. The adopted system was a mix of iron frame, corrugated panels, dry wall, still deck and ready-made aluminum windows. Due to the topography of the land, the ground floor is not on the ground but elevated by support columns and bins made of special oxidized steel. This level opens up to a large area, connected to the outside by sliding glass doors and windows.
