House in Iporanga- Simple Stunning Architecture o5

House in Iporanga 1With warm Cumaru wood paneling exterior, House in Iporanga is an architect's residence in the middle of the forest. “I always wanted a house in the middle of the forest, in a place where I could relax and recharge my energy”, says Arthur, from Arthur Casas.

The house is in the form of two large simple, symmetrical cubes embracing an open space. As describes, 'the absence of partitions amplifies the house’s integration with its surroundings and adds grandeur to the minimalist living area. A large terrace borders the house, functioning as a belvedere to observe the surrounding untouched Atlantic Rain Forest, and a partition between natural and constructed. Stepping down, the infinity edged pool seems to pour out into the thick vegetation.'
