Rio House

This impressive residence, designed by the Olson Kundig architecture studio, stands out for the solutions found by the architects to make the most of the 140 square meters of built area. Located in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, the compact house is located adjacent to the Tijuca national park overlooking the city, the sea, and the famous Christ The Redeemer statue. The home is integrated in harmony with the wildness of its tropical jungle setting, and hovers above the land supported structurally by two concrete piers. The upper level contains a bedroom, and living accommodation including a kitchen, dining area, and lounge. Below, a screened porch, fireplace and outdoor kitchenette allow the owners to engage the landscape.
