This contemporary home in Ubatuba, Brazil hangs on a steep hillside above Tenório's Beach. With indoor and outdoors spaces connected via various ramps, stairways, and bridges, the home becomes a modern interpretation of the Swiss Family Robinson treehouse. Architects at SPBR Arquitetos designed the home to take advantage of the pristine beach views and surrounding plantlife.
The home is a massive 3,660 square feet (340 sqm) and is supported by a framework made from 3 large columns of reinforced concrete and 4 steel beams. The dramatic change in elevation on the steep hillside dictated that the home had to "hang" from the framework — the roof (and rooftop pool) is actually at street level.
