COPACABANA

 

Located on the hill behind Copacabana Beach, this house is designed to create a tranquil holiday home. The L-shaped building form edits out views of neighbouring houses, framing the southwestern water views.

 

The kitchen and living spaces open both to the view deck and to a garden courtyard on the northeastern side, allowing occupants to adjust to movements of the sun and breeze and maximize the time spent living outdoors.
