Paraty House, Brazil

Paraty House, Brazil


The Paraty House, designed by the internationally-renowned architect Marcio Kogan, adeptly combines formal simplicity and traditionalism, with attention to detail and unique structures, to perfectly complement its mountain terrain. Located in one of the islands of the colonial city of Paraty and Angra dos Reis (between São Paulo and Rio de Janeiro), the house manages to maintain, and become one with the nature that surrounds it. The Paraty house is constructed of two prism like concrete boxes that are placed on top of one another, while projecting on to the beach in a 26 ft. cantilever. The Paraty house boasts open outdoor areas and living space adorned with a furniture collection that features 20th century designs of renowned artists. The residents arrive by boat, where they enter on a metallic bridge that sits atop a crystal-lined reflecting pool. They are led to a stairway that connects to the lower volume of the house which contains the kitchen, living room and service area. The 88 ft. floor-to-ceiling glass windows capture the spectacular and breathtaking views of the Brazilian coast. The upper volume of the house, which is where the bedrooms are located, boasts retractile panels of eucalyptus sticks that protects the bedrooms from the sun. The mountain side of the residence has small internal patios that use exposed reinforced concrete and zenithal lighting to create a striking and magnificent texture to the walls. The top of the Paraty house is covered with terraces which allows the resident to take advantage of the unique topography and characteristics of the land. The terraces are used as a garden for sculptures, observation decks and for medicinal plants and herbs. The balance of nature and simplicity with modernity achieved is truly sensational.
