Rio de Janeiro-based studio Cadas Arquitetura has designed this two story contemporary home is located in Petrópolis, also known as The Imperial City of Brazil, about 40 miles (65 km) from the city of Rio de Janeiro. Located in the mountainous region of Rio de Janeiro, the residence of 1200m2 surrounded by mountains, rivers and vegetation, serves as home for a young couple from Rio. The architectural and structural party blend modern lines with a cozy interior, typical of architecture of this region. The idea that the garden was part of the house results in a open space plan and glass facade continuing the existing balconies all around the house, bringing the exterior inside.
