Party by the beach

Where the rainforest meets the sea on a Brazilian island there is a sliver of sand. Where the rainforest meets the sea there are palm trees. Where the rainforest meets the sea there is a house. A stone house and concrete and glass house. A perfect beach party house. Casa Paraty by Marcio Kogan of Studio MK27.

Oh my GAWD this is seriously a dream! I could get used to sitting by that pool every day!


PS. I'm such a fan of your blog - I'm a Canadian living in Australia and love that you two are from both of my homes :)

Nice lanai. The interior seems dark, maybe to keep the house cool. Too bad the cook has to work on a kitchen island that faces a stone wall. But I'm guessing they don't do a lot of cooking, or at least, themselves. The whole structure seems rather cold and deserted.

Absolutely a dream vacation spot...I'm picturing myself there...right...now....sigh....
Loved the big circle/hole in the rustic bench!

Kogan is the best! All their houses are amazing! This in particular makes me want to go to the beach right now!

Okay, pretty much my idea of paradise - the materials, textures, inside blending into outside. Wow...kind of speechless right now!
It is such a large cantilevered structure yet feels so light and weightless. Amazing!

The first time I saw this house I totally fall in love! How much money I shoul have to build a house like this? :D

This'll be my party pad when I make it big. In my dreams.

I'll take it!

The stone interior walls are awesome, and although the concrete walls have texture, it would be cold. My opinion (bias) comes from my college campus where several buildings were made of concrete. I like certain things made of concrete, not vast exposed home interiors.

Just my .02

Keep up the awesome work. You provide such terrific ideas!

This house is truly astounding, breathtaking! But a swimming pool meters from a glorious sea? How sad, how very out of touch with nature, how disappointing, and - given the context - how environmentally-unfriendly! That pretty much kills off this house for me altogether.

I'm perversely delighted that this Bond villain lair has a vegetable patch. Because even evil supervillains like to eat organic.

Ah, it's OK...I suppose.
