Local Bernardes Arquitetura created the Casa Terra in Rio de Janeiro to be a modern getaway with a rust-colored exterior that mimics the red shades of the neighboring mountain peaks.
The home features an open floorplan that is laid out in a series of irregular, interlocking volumes. Each unit is formed in rows of concrete to extend the main walkway to create a flowing indoor/outdoor living style. The perpendicular walls are capped with large windows that create individual rooms with views of the mountains.
Offering multiple outdoor living spaces and oversized ceiling heights, the Casa Terra has a larger-than-life look, making any guest feel as though the home is actually a luxurious resort.
