Overlooking the Atlantic Ocean, the Guaruja Peninsula House is a coastal retreat in São Paulo. The dwelling is made from a series of volumes staked on the rocky shoreline. A concrete rectangular base sits on a foundation of stilts for minimal impact on the land while a triangular volume is suspended above. Housing the private areas, their solid facades conceal the home's more intimate rooms from onlookers. Public living spaces are located in a transparent void between the two volumes, allowing for expansive views of the landscape. The glazing opens out to a poolside terrace floating above the sea below.
