FeaturedMAJ House: Integration with the Tropical Garden in São Paulo

The MAJ House in São Paulo, Brazil, designed by Bernardes Arquitetura in 2020, is a two-story residence that stands out for its simplification of material, visual permeability and integration with the tropical garden.

The concrete, eucalyptus glued laminated wood and Siena granite used in its construction, as well as iconic pieces of Brazilian design, bring a cozy atmosphere to the home. The integration of the internal and external space allows the breeze to flow, making it the perfect urban home.

FeaturedParaty’s JSL House: Steel, Wood & Tropical Landscaping

Welcome to the JSL House, a single-family residence designed by Bernardes Arquitetura and located in a residential condominium in Paraty, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

A few meters away from the beach, the residence was designed with the idea of connection in mind – visual, privileging the view to the sea; and living and leisure spaces. Steel beams, wooden slats and colorless glass railings make up the exterior and interior of the property, giving it a contemporary feel, while sailor rope, navy blue, ocher and nautical striped pattern fabrics bring the beach atmosphere inside. The frames of the living and dining rooms can be completely opened, allowing a stunning view of the horizon.
