We recently wrote about a magnificent rainforest house located in Brazil. Now we have another one worth a mention, also constructed by Studio MK27 in a mountainous region of Brazil, 180 km from São Paulo. Despite Brazil’s hot temperatures, this part of the country is actually a bit chillier, never exceeding 20 degrees Celsius. This is why Mororo House is well insulated and offers a warm and cozy space for a perfect retreat.
Surrounded by pine trees and beautiful forest, the 65 metre long Mororo House is divided into two parts, one end being opaque and the other transparent. The house is very long and with the same continuous volume, it looks almost like a shed.
The materials used are mostly metal and wood. The bigger, opaque block is where the living room and five bedrooms are, as well as service areas, while the transparent part houses the heated pool and sauna.
With the walls and ceilings made out of wood, the interior looks very comfortable and brings a homey atmosphere. There’s a large kitchen and dining area with a table that can sit 16 people. The house also features an integrated ventilation system, so the glass doesn’t fog and harm the view.
The large wooden deck connects the two parts of the house and is a great place to spend summer days at. You won’t find regular windows in the house but a series of slide glass doors with wooden shutters that lead to the deck. (images by Fernando Guerra).
