Studio MK27 has designed a rural home that captures panoramic views of the Atlantic Ocean in northeast Brazil.
When confronted with powerful natural elements, such as the ocean, architecture must open itself and project towards the limit.
Immersed within the tropical woods that lead to a stunning beach, the house expresses an authentic experimentation around the dissolution of architecture into its natural surroundings.
Life takes place inside and in between five separate volumes, covered by a rustic eucalyptus pergola that creates a constant and poetic rain of shadows throughout the day.
This project has been longlisted in the rural house project category of Dezeen Awards 2020.
