Shortlisted for rural house of the year at Dezeen Awards 2019, Casa Campinarana is a concrete house in the Amazon by Laurent Troost.
Casa Campinarana is located in Manaus, a town in northwestern Brazil along the Negro and Amazon rivers. Brazilian firm Laurent Troost designed the two-storey house within a campinarana, a forest characterised by small trees. The house features a kitchen and living room on the top floor, as well as an elevated swimming pool. These spaces were built on the first floor to minimise the building's footprint and preserve local ecological systems.
