The Leaf House
May 24, 2012 // Dream Homes //

A giant umbrella as a roof to protect you from heat of the sun, spaces oriented specifically to allow the local sea breeze to cool the air, natural materials like bamboo, eucalyptus and local rocks. The management of rainwater for the garden, and openings everywhere on the surrounding nature, where there is a strong focus on the areas of community life.

This is essentially a portrait of the Leaf House. The Leaf House is a green trend in architecture that blends into the area while meeting in an original and relevant environment.

The Leaf House is designed by the Brazilian studio, Mareines + Patalano. It is located one hour south of Rio de Janeiro.
