This cleaned-lined luxury home tucked discreetly into a hill on the edge of the Brazilian rainforest outside of São Paulo is the stuff James Bond films are made of.
The project, developed by Brazilian architecture firm studio MK27, is designed to create a seamless connection between the building and nature.
The largest section of the house, built of cement and wood, appears to be suspended out of the hillside. Here, you can enjoy breathtaking views of the Atlantic Ocean and the vegetation from the glass-cubed section that houses the kitchen, lounge and living area; or from the wrap-around patio that includes a hot tub, infinity pool and bonfire area.
Below is a level with six bedrooms, five of which have their own small private balconies and hammocks.
Tucked at the base is an area with wooden decking, offering a shaded space perfect for lounging during the heat of the day. A simplistic staircase ascends from the deck up into the concrete base of the first level of the home. The concrete walls on the side of the staircase are illuminated by a feature light fixture by Danish-Icelandic artist Olafur Eliasson.
