|The roof acts as a big leaf that protects from the hot sun |
all the enclosed spaces of the house as the in-between open spaces,
truly the most important ones.
|Inspired by Brazil’s Indian architecture |
and perfectly suited for the hot and humid climate,
this 8,600 square foot beach house is located in
Angra dos Reis, one hour drive south of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.
|Rio de Janeiro-based studio Mareines & Patalano Arquitetura |
has completed the Leaf House project in 2008
