Brazilian architecture studio MK27 designed a jungle house, “Casa na Mata“, on the verge of the Brazilian rain forest close to the Sao Paulo coastline. Completely surrounded by nature, the architects wanted to get the best out of contemporary design combined with the extraordinary natural characteristics. Keeping that in mind, MK27 created an oasis in Brazil that harmonizes with the dense vegetation that surrounds the building.
The house is elevated from the ground to align with the topography and the applied materials such as wood, concrete and natural stone. While the architecture studio used proven materials, the floor plan deviates from typical family homes: The ground floor offers a spacious roofed wooden terrace and a small children’s room. On the first floor the architects created six bedrooms and a TV lounge. Whereas the second floor is conceptualized as the social area of the house, providing the kitchen and the living room. Furthermore the upper floor provides a hot tub, a sauna, an outdoor fireplace and a huge infinity pool. In order to take the best advantage of the scenic landscape the architects worked with various openings. In this way you can marvel at the view of the ocean, the forest and the mountain not only from the roof but from all levels of the jungle house.
