The Rainforest House Surprisingly Blends Into Its Surroundings

The Rainforest House is aptly named. Surrounded on three sides by lush greenery, the monolithic, rectangular structure looks strangely at home. In spite of its modern shape, it blends beautifully into its natural habitat. This most likely has a lot to do with the warm wooden materials and unassuming exterior.

Found on a mountainside overlooking the Atlantic Ocean, the Rainforest House was built by Studio MK27. Although its location might make it seem unique, the layout of the interior does so as well. Unlike more typical homes, the Rainforest House puts the deck, children's play area and utilities on the ground floor while six bedrooms rest on the next level up -- five of which come with their own decks -- and a glass-walled top floor holding the living room and kitchen. Its finished with an infinity pool, firepit, hot tub, and sauna in the social outdoor spaces.
