Quinta da Baronesa

Quinta da Baronesa looks like an absolute utopia – something straight out of Avatar. Beautifully lush green grass slopes downward, interrupted by an emerging wooden block made from organic sustainable Cumaru and old brick from a former demolition.

Studio Arthur Casas created the residence in Sao Paulo, Brazil with the intention of having the house go unnoticed from the street perspective. The rugged typography conceals an angular dwelling below the initial slope. Organic materials create a network of interconnected open areas opening on a horizontal pergola, endless lap pool and lush golf course. Looks like the perfect place for a caipirinha. You know what they say, "When in Rio..."
