The Paraty House — not to be confused with Party House — was designed by Marcio Kogan Architects and is comprised of two concrete boxes that sit atop one another. The home is nestled in the mountainside of an island in Paraty, Brazil and residents have to arrive by boat.
The lower level features a crystal-lined reflecting pool and also houses the living room and kitchen. The upper level contains the bedrooms. A retractable panel of eucalyptus sticks keep the sun from glaring in the rooms, as seen in the 5th photo.
The interior of the home is swanked out with 20-century design along with artwork from many well-known artists.
