Jungle House by Studio MK27

Climbing trees as a kid was as much about goofing around and showing off as it was to try to gain a different perspective on the world around you. Yeah, you got to impress your friends by showing how high you could climb, but you also got to see what the world looked like from 30 feet up. The Rainforest House by the architecture MK27 located in Brazil not only embraces the idea of getting a tree-top view of the world, it incorporates the very idea of looking at things differently into its basic structure.

Positioned in what was once an open area within the vegetation, almost every aspect of the home is intended to ‘optimize the connection between architecture and nature’. Projecting itself from the mountain and suspending above the ground thanks to two large pillars, this house begins at the bottom of the foliage and climbs up three stories to the top of the treeline. Within the house, the organization of the floors is inverted – with the pool and social areas on the roof, bedrooms on the second, and a deck and appliances on the first. Made up of primarily concrete and wood, this has to be one of the best houses out there.
