About CMA House
Embracing the Ocean: A Family’s Dream Home in Angra dos Reis
This stunning house, featuring expansive eaves, intricate mashrabiya panels, and towering two-story glass openings, was specially commissioned by a family residing in Rio de Janeiro. They desired a home where they could spend most of their leisure time in the Angra dos Reis archipelago, surrounded by friends and always connected to the ocean.
Harmonious Blend of Materials on a Scenic Slope
Constructed from a steel structure, rough stone, natural wood, and glass, the house gracefully occupies a steep slope that plunges directly into the ocean, with neighbors on either side. The home’s entrance, an inclined plane, guides visitors from the parking lot to the upper level where the bedrooms showcase breathtaking ocean views. A reflective pool and an internal garden enhance the transition from the outdoors into the house.
Expansive Living Spaces and Sustainable Design
The double-height living room generously opens up to the ocean view once more, as the single-story veranda offers sustainable shelter. The pool and yard extend the social space, seamlessly integrating indoor and outdoor environments.
Luxurious Amenities and a Separate Guest House
Nestled close to the ocean access level, the spa facilities and entertainment room provide a touch of privacy from the rest of the home. A pre-existing guest house, situated even higher than the main residence on the opposite side of the road, offers additional accommodations for visitors.
