Residential Building of the Year (Single Occupancy)

Residential Building of the Year - Single Occupancy.JPG

Nestled into the mountainous lush coastline of São Paulo state, the Jungle House surveys its territory, and in their design, Studio MK27 Architects optimize the connection between architecture and nature, whilst maximising views out to the ocean and sunlight within the internal spaces. 

The house, built on 3 levels in concrete and timber, elevates the main living area volume on top, rising from the topography of the mountain and appearing to burst out of its habitat. 

The walls are textured and raw, but the interior design is welcoming. 

Judges’ comments include:

  • Nestled into its lush mountainous coastline
  • Maximising views out to the ocean and access to  sunlight within the internal spaces
  • Its main living area bursting out of its habitat
  • Contrasting a raw textured exterior with a warm interior
