Leaf House by Mareines + Patalano

Published Jun 9, 2011

Spectacular project by Mareines + Patalano Architecture.

“This project was inspired by Brazil’s indian architecture, perfectely suited for the hot and humid climate where it stands, Angra dos Reis, one hour drive south of Rio de Janeiro. The roof acts as a big leaf that protects from the hot sun all the enclosed spaces of the house.”
