A Remote Residence In A Brazilian Forest By Atelier Marko Brajovic

The architects behind Brazil-based studio Atelier Marko Brajovic created a holiday house located in the dense Brazilian Atlantic Forest. Titled ‘ARCA‘, the name reflects the building’s arc-shaped structure that consists of carbon steel, aluminum and zinc. The warm interior features timber walls and a floor-to-ceiling glass facade that offers stunning views of the nearby waterfall. On the concept behind the structure, the studio says: “In fact, on a more anecdotic level, it’s an earthship project, that comes from a wish to mimic a specific Brazilian indigenous house typology and be a stand alone object with minimal impact to the surrounding.”
