Modern tree house floats above the breathtaking Brazilian coastline

This incredible 3,726 square foot modern tree house in Ubatuba, a coastal city in Sao Paulo, Brazil was designed by . Located at the end of Tenório’s Beach, the structure is built on a hill of a fairly extreme slope of 50% and reaches 92 feet above the road. The Ubatuba beach house is built on a property of 180 feet x 52 feet (55m x 16m), which is protected by environmental laws, which is what inspired the design of the home.

The residence uses three reinforced concrete columns that are the main structural support of the home. The home has been designed with varying levels to enable breathtaking ocean views from every room. The main access to the house is through the terrace, which is on top at the same level as the street. There is a bridge that links the street to the main entrance of the dwelling, which enables varying views of the sea, the hill and the trees. In addition to preserving the original landscape, this hanged house in fact hovers amongst the foliage, encircled by birds and completely open to the surrounding seascape.

What We Love: The living spaces of this home seems to float in space through the trees, and from each of them the views open to the panoramas of the landscape. Hovering over the mesmerizing coast of beautiful Brazil, this unique pad with it’s rooftop swimming pool and indoor-outdoor living is an architectural masterpiece. Although minimal in design, the way that this home is integrated into nature makes this space feel restful and tranquil.
