Using a material palette of raw concrete, steel, and glass, the JJO House aims to immerse occupants in the forest of Brazil. The residence sits on a steep slope. At the top of the hill are a garage and workshop. A walkway leads to the main house. Once inside, the main living area enveloped in glass showcases the surrounding treetops. Below, bedrooms sit on the ground level where floor-to-ceiling glazing affords views of the forest floor. The crowning feature of the home is the rooftop terrace. Sitting in the canopy, the open-air offers a direct connection to the surrounding landscape.
