This elongated house in Rio de Janeiro is architecturally designed by studio Carla Juaçaba to adjust to the demanding landscape and urban developments of the region. With many obstacles on the way, the home "follows the level curve with a level difference between the two parts of the house." Embracing the encompassing forest to its full potential, the elongated house features extensive window panes that connect all parts of the house and that reveal a breathtaking panoramic view.
The Carla Juaçaba architects aimed to create a budget-friendly elongated house design with a "thin metal structures, which repeat every two meters" and which are supported on a sill plate slab. Homey and welcoming, the elongated house structure boasts harmoniously beautiful design.
