Nestled in the dense vegetation on the paulista shore in the region of the Rain Forest, the Jungle House (Casa Na Mata) is designed by Brazilian architecture Studio MK27 to optimize the connection between architecture and nature.
The main volume of the house is elevated from the ground and seems built into the topography. The house, therefore, projects itself out from the mountain. The contact elements between the slope and the construction – as for example the wooden decks – were shaped to respect the existing land, thereby creating an organic interaction between nature and the architectural elements. In the part that it comes out of the mountain, the structure touches the ground with only two pillars.
