The converted warehouse and loft living are taken to the next level in the MaracanĂ£ House by Terra e Tuma. Stepping into its great open-concept spaces might have you wondering if you've stumbled into a room that was originally a truck delivery bay or a carport. With chain-link fences for balustrades, exposed electrical conduits and two-story doors that open to the outside, it certainly isn't your stereotypical home.

This unique Brazilian dwelling was always intended as a private residence, and you'll have no doubt that it functions as an effective one once you've taken a closer look. It might be made of unfinished concrete blocks for a generally brutalist and garage-y type of edifice, yet the MaracanĂ£ House's configuration is remarkably well thought out and it has all of the comforts one might want in an abode.
