Since Marcon House backs onto a lake, Ramella Arquitetura, the studio behind the home, knew that the rear-facing facade was at least as important as the front side. The home thus employs a sturdy, squat form that spreads horizontally, leaving plenty of space for the occupants to move along the back of the home while also making the front an attractive combination of brick and concrete.

The rear side of Marcon House does everything it can to maximize views of the lake behind the home. It not only has a ground level patio that can be accessed through the home's open concept living area, but the top floor also has a long balcony that offers elevated views.
