Maracana House In Sao Paulo, Brazil

Jun 12, 2015

Category: Living

With more than 11 million Brazilians living there, São Paulo is pretty tightly packed. So with narrow living spaces the norm, a residence like Maracanã House is all the more noteworthy.

With its offbeat geometry, the converted warehouse by Brazilian architects Terra e Tuma immediately stands out. There’s unfinished concrete blocks, chain-link fences for balustrades, exposed electrical conduits, and two-story doors that open to the outside. Despite its constraints, the vibe inside is airy and open thanks to the sliding glass doors. There’s an entrance that lets one look down into the living room and acts as a buffer between it and the bedrooms upstairs. It’s all capped off with lovely rooftop view of São Paulo’s Lapa neighborhood.
